Itís widely accepted that higher education leads to better life outcomes, yet college remains an unfulfilled hope for many young Americans.


For First-Year Students

Who goes to Smith? We could quote statistics on geographic distribution, class rank and College Board examination scores. But statistics do little to give you a sense of the vibrancy, intelligence and talent of the women who choose Smith. Every incoming class includes some who have unusual talents and maybe some weaknesses. Though diverse, all have strong academic records, as well as several other attributes that the board of admission seeks: motivation, determination and curiosity.
