What happens on Mountain Day?

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, Mendenhall, 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:
7:30 to 9:30 a.m. - Chase/Duckett, Cushing/Emerson, Cutter/Ziskind, King/Scales, Tyler
7:00-9:30 a.m. - Hubbard and Lamont (continental breakfast)
NOTE: Student workers need to work their assigned breakfast shifts on Mountain Day.

All lunch sites will put out ingredients for students to put together bag lunchNoteableses:
10:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. - Chase/Duckett, Cushing/Emerson, Cutter/Ziskind, Gillett/Northrop, King/Scales, Lamont, Tyler, Chapin, and Hubbard
NOTE: Remember to bring your water bottles to take a beverage!

Dinner will be served as usual.
NOTE: Student workers should report to their regular dinner shifts.

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.
