Have you ever imagined a podcast made to students for students at Holyoke Community College? Well, “the room where it happens” podcast is here. Every Monday of the spring semester, on all our college platforms.

In this first season, you will be taken on an informative journey of all the events, activities, new projects, improvement of policies, updates about EDI equity, diversity, inclusion, and campus safety initiatives basically everything that is happening at HCC.

Also, this will be a place for everybody to open up and to share anything that is on your mind.
