Botanical Print
Since 1875, when Botany was first offered to students at Smith, many plant science courses have stimulated students' minds. The Botanic Garden now collaborates with Smith faculty in all disciplines -- sciences, social sciences, humanities, arts. Students have exciting and valuable opportunities to work directly with living plants as part of their academic studies.
