Pangynaskeia – A Mount Holyoke Tradition



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.” [x]

But, perhaps more importantly, there were bunnies. Very very cute bunnies.

And a Goth manages to go outside and, then quickly runs back inside to avoid the sun and take outfit photos:
