A Smith tradition since 1877, classes and academic appointments scheduled before 7 pm are cancelled.


Mountain Day is a surprise break from classes. The president chooses a beautiful fall day and announces the holiday by ringing the college bells. A picnic lunch can be provided by the college to be carried to the students' various outdoor activities on campus or to nearby parks. Evening classes, films, lectures and other events will be held as planned.
