“The overall experience at Smith College was super. The affordability that the dorms offered
made Camp a viable option for many. The campus is beautiful, well maintained and has a sense of
tranquility. The food and accommodations were great. All of the Smith staff was very helpful. The
participants were happy!”
Christina Richison, Director of Business Development and Strategic Partnerships, National
Institute for Technology in Liberal Education
“We appreciate how Smith worked to accommodate our need for both large and small working
spaces and loved the flexibility of the rooms. Housekeepers were very friendly and accessible during
our stay. The dining staff was most helpful and attentive to our needs -- vegetarian, vegan, etc.
Participants raved about the dining experience: ‘adult’ choices, nice touches, felt
taken care of, and final dinner was lovely.”
Laurie Riffe, Institute Manager, Shakespeare & Company
"Smith College is an excellent venue for summer staff development. The lecture halls and
classrooms are elegant, spacious, well furnished with state of the art equipment, and cool despite
temperatures in the 90s. Our 50 teachers made extensive use of the computer labs. We all found
the AV staff readily available, knowledgeable, and unflappable. Thanks, Smith, for your generous
help with our history institute!"
Rich Cairn, Program Director, Hampshire Educational Collaborative
"For years our participants have enjoyed the outstanding facilities Smith offers: the beautiful
campus; the fine food; as well as the charming town of Northampton and its environs. It is a summer
treat our workshop community looks forward to eagerly from year to year."
