Pangy Day at Mount Holyoke College is a tradition that started in 1980. It celebrates the arrival of Spring with a May Pole, flowers, dancing, and a picnic.
Today’s Pangy Day had to be moved inside but that doesn’t stop the fun. Ashley Kohl and Alanna Flood take us to the middle of the celebrations. We learn how the tradition started and what it means to Mount Holyoke’s students.
We also learn about what it takes to feed a crowd. We talk with Rich Perna to hear about Mount Holyoke College’s new dining commons.
Finally, it’s time to unwind the ribbons on the Maypole so it’s ready for today’s festivities!
