Admission Offers Early Glimpse of College Life

More than 160 visitors—high school sophomores and juniors and their families—will converge on the Smith campus on Friday, March 14, to get a taste of college life and learn about their impending admission process.

Students and their families will travel from as far away as Texas, Washington and California to participate in Smith’s first Spring Preview, a half-day event designed to provide them with an introduction to the college admission process and the distinctive opportunities at Smith.

Spring Preview is similar to the annual Fall Preview and to Simply Smith later in the spring, said Maureen Pine, assistant director of admission, who is coordinating the event. The Office of Admission added the Spring Preview to accommodate high school students during their spring break, she said, and before their senior year when they may have finalized their college lists.

“We’re hoping to generate some interest in Smith College for these students,” she said. “We wanted to invite the younger high school students to stimulate their interest.”

Participants will take part in workshops throughout the morning on the admission application process, financing, preparing for college interviews, collegiate academic atmosphere, studying abroad, and writing college admission essays, said Pine. The students will take a tour of the campus following lunch in the Campus Center.
