Pangy Day 2011!!! It was beautiful, warm, sunny, fun, tasty, and so much more!


Pangynaskeia, a word loosely defined as “cultivating the total world of women—physical, intellectual, and moral,” was one of the names that Mary Lyon was considering for her new seminary before the name “Mount Holyoke” won out. In 1979, Pangynaskeia (now commonly called “Pangy Day”) debuted as a Mount Holyoke College tradition celebrating this “total world of women.”
