Come cheer on your fellow students and favorite professors at Hoops for Human Rights! You’re guaranteed a nail-biter of a match on March 1st at 5:30pm at the Kendall Gymnasium.
Hoops for Human Rights is a friendly basketball game featuring Mount Holyoke’s varsity basketball team pitted against our faculty basketball team. At half-time, there will be a one-on-one mini “match” between a faculty or staff member of your choice and a student. All proceeds from admission will benefit Courtney’s House, a center based in Washington DC for survivors of domestic minor sex trafficking.
