Mountain Day is the
annual fall break from classes that has been a Smith tradition
for more than a century. On one beautiful, crisp fall day,
the President will declare Mountain Day!
College bells in the
Quadrangle, the Helen Hills Hills Chapel and College Hall
will ring at 7:05, 7:15, and 7:30 a.m. to announce the holiday.
Classes and academic appointments are canceled until 7 p.m.
Please note that evening events, like films and lectures,
will be held as scheduled.
Breakfast will be served
in the regular locations:
Chase/Duckett, Cusing/Emerson, Cutter/Ziskind, and Tyler from
7:30 to 9:30 a.m.
Hubbard (continental breakfast) from 7:00-9:30.
All lunch sites will
put out ingredients for students to put together bag lunches
from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. (Chapin 10-1). Dinner will be
served as usual.
So when you hear those
bells, put aside your books and enjoy the fall weather. Go
on a hike, have a picnic with friends, or just relax out in
the sun with a good novel. This is your day.
You can e-mail email@example.com,
and the director of Dining Services, Kathleen Zieja, will
read your inquiry and respond in one of two ways. If it is
a specific question, you will receive a personal response;
if there are common themes and all students would benefit
by the answer, then we will post the answer on this page.

Smith offers an Off-Campus
Meal Plan to Smith students who are not on the regular meal plan. You will find information about this plan and a downloadable sign-up sheet on the Dining Services site.
Yes. Students on the
boad plan may get a 5-College dining pass to eat at one of
the other 4 colleges. Contact the Dining Services office by
phone (x2300) or email ErikaHerring.
You must let them know what meal(s) you need the pass for.
Once you get the 5-College meal pass, you bring the pass to
the other campus dining service office and they will assign
you a place to eat.
Students do not need an academic reason for weekly lunch meals;
for dinner and weekend meals, you must inform the Dining Service
office of the class or academic reason that requires you to
be at the other campus.
Hubbard is open for
continental breakfast from 7 - 11:00 a.m. and then an "expanded"
continental breakfast from 11:00 - 1:00 p.m. The printed menu
always lists some breakfast sandwiches, quiches, hot sandwiches
and other options. The staff adds more items to the menu.
The options include yogurt, pre-made salads, sandwiches, and
fresh fruit. Macaroni and cheese and chili will be served
as a lunch option occassionally.
Please visit http://www.smith.edu/its/services/onecard.html
for information about lost, stolen, or damaged OneCards.
Eight guest tickets
have been programmed into the OneCard.
This year all Smith
students again received a special 16 oz insulated "to-go"
mug. In order to support sustainability efforts, we will no
longer have paper cups available in the dining rooms, so we
encourage you to bring your mug to meals if you intend to
carry beverages out of the dining room. Students are able
to use these 16 oz mugs in the Campus Center to purchase coffee
or tea but are charged only for the regular 12 oz cup.

Green Team Web site.
Dining Services will
continue to work with individual students who have documented
food allergies. If you know you have a food allergy, you should
call the Dining Services office (585-2300) and ask to speak
to Kathy Zieja right away.
Since nuts are a known cause
of potentially severe allergic reaction, all our food stations
will be set up to keep nuts separate from the rest of the
food being served. In addition, foods containing nuts will
be clearly labeled.
