Orientation Groups

Each year incoming first-year students select an orientation group program in which to participate. While these programs vary from year to year, the selection below provides a glimpse of what these programs may look like in the coming year.

We encourage students to be familiar with the orientation group offerings listed below. Mid-July we will activate the login for orientation group sign up.

Sign in information and special instructions will be sent to all students at their Smith College email address just prior to the opening of the web form. All orientation groups have limited capacity, and students are advised to be prepared with alternative choices in case their first choice for an orientation group is full.

More information on these groups will be available over the summer.
