There are many student life resources available at Smith through residence life and student affairs. Here are a few others that are unique to Smith.
With the Wurtele Center for Work and Life, Smith College introduces the concept that a "life well-lived" is not necessarily all about doing academic work or building a high-powered career or even all about service. Instead, it is about making purposeful choices, as often as possible, at the junctures and cross-points of life and work. To that end, every woman can benefit from developing a habit of reflection and from learning to forge a dynamic relationship between the two.
The Women's Narratives Project brings women together to engage in new thinking about the meaning of success. Our educational programs draw on research and personal experience to promote reflection on work, friendship, family and values. We aim to advance the national discussion on women and work-life balance, offer new models and encourage women at all stages of life to rewrite their own narratives.
The Center provides opportunities for students and faculty for partnering with their community and in communities around the world and supports courses and projects that provide opportunities for real-life learning and scholarship, while addressing community goals.
Interterm is the time between the end of winter break and the beginning of spring semester. Special noncredit courses (taught by students, staff or faculty), events and workshops are planned for the second two weeks of interterm.
