The fall 2011 semester began with uncharacteristic tornadoes touching down in nearby Springfield, followed by Hurricane Irene and a freak October snowstorm that felled tree limbs and left the campus in darkness for more than a day. Meanwhile, Smith faculty discussed their scholarship on camera for a new video series, Scholars in Studio. As the holidays approached, members of the Smith community around the world tuned in to watch a live broadcast of the popular Christmas Vespers. This special Gate edition celebrates and revisits some of the Smith highlights from 2011.
