SLIS West celebrates a milestone with faculty, staff, students and alumni

On Saturday, May 6, Simmons SLIS celebrated the 15th Anniversary of SLIS West, our satellite campus at Mount Holyoke College in Western Massachusetts. Current and past faculty, staff, alumni, and students gathered in South Hadley to celebrate. 

Warm memories and reflections on the program were shared by a number of people who have been involved over the years. SLIS West welcomed its first group of students in the fall of 2001, and continues to provide world class information science education to students throughout western New England.
