Day One: Mount Holyoke, Clark University, and the mall!

Day one of the New England college tour is off! Heading out from Mount Ida early this morning, we made it to Mount Holyoke college for a tour with two best-friend-tour-guides! Though the day was grey, the historic campus reminded us of Emma Willard School with its circa 1830s architecture, impressive towering library, expansive greens (or, they would be, come spring) and endless traditions. 

After an information session chock-full of the student and alum experience, where students had time to ask questions ranging from the wellness resources available to continuing crew. Our guides then picked us up for a quick lunch in the dining hall before piling back into the van to make our way to Clark University. 

Once there, we were greeted with information packets and snacks, before another information session featuring a current student to detail the experience. Our two tour guides led us throughout the campus, including athletic facilities and Clark University’s first building. 

The first two visits crossed off the list, we headed over to the Natick Mall for some window shopping, actual shopping, dinner, and ice cream before resting for the day tomorrow: Wellesley College and Northeastern University!
