The Eliana Ortega, known as the "Ortega'' serves as a home away from home for the MHC Latinx community. Get to know other MHC students/alums, faculty, and staff who identify as members of the Latinx diaspora at our Homecoming event featuring a virtual cooking demonstration by Yaldira Felix Castro, Career Advisor at the Career Development Center.

What is Homecoming at the Mount Holyoke College Cultural Centers?

Homecoming at the Cultural Centers is an annual “welcome home” meet and greet type event for students, faculty/staff, retired faculty/staff, and regional alumnae/alumnx based on how they self-identify in relation to the various cultural centers. These events will help us build solidarity within these communities.

Homecomings are community spaces for those who share the identities of each center. For those who do not self-identify with these communities but want to learn and show support, we invite you to join us during weekly open hours throughout the academic year, and, most importantly, the Birthday Celebrations honoring the founding and legacy of each cultural center.
