Student EVENT Committee
The Student Event Committee (SEC) is the main student programming organization at Smith, hosting over 100 free events annually. Formed in Spring 2010 through the merger of the Campus Center Activities Board and Smith College Rec Council, the SEC does it all from small events to major concerts and everything in between.
As a member of the SEC you will have the opportunity to participate in a great leadership opportunity. From brainstorming ideas, calling agents, booking talent, communicating with university officials, securing venues, to watching the event actually happen, we do it all, and so can you.
Although we receive guidance and support from our adviser (the assistant director of the OSE for student programs), SEC is a student-run, hands-on organization. You get to meet exciting people and bring events to campus that Smith students eagerly anticipate.
Weekly MeetingsThe Student Event Committee meets every Thursday night in the Campus Center. Everyone is welcome.
If you are interested in becoming a member of a student event committee or co-sponsoring an event with us, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The SEC concert committee brings bands and performers to campus. We plan outdoor concerts in the fall and spring as well as major concerts. We have worked with local bands like Barefoot Truth and Darlingside, as well as national acts like The Counting Crows, Vampire Weekend, Feist and Jay Sean.
Jittery's is the SEC's coffeehouse series. We bring up-and-coming acoustic performers to campus. Jittery's takes place Thursday nights at 10 p.m. in the Campus Center TV lounge and is a great opportunity to take a break, enjoy a coffee and some great music.
The SEC film committee brings first run films to campus each weekend. Films are shown weekly on Friday night and Saturday afternoon. Selections range from comedies to thrillers to indie films.
As the newest SEC committee, this group brings speakers and lectures to campus, both large and small. The hope is that these speakers will spark an interest, encourage dialogue, and expose the Smith community to new and diverse ideas.
The special events committee of the SEC plans everything from large-scale parties to bowling nights. We also plan Break From The Norm events, which are quick, fun lunchtime programs meant to allow you to take a minute out of your busy schedule to relax and recharge.
The SEC synergies committee is dedicated to helping student organizations plan collaborative events. Our mission is to develop leadership and programming experiences at Smith by collaborating with other groups to plan events.
The SEC vocal expressions committee brings comedians and spoken word artists to campus. We have worked with artists such as Eric O'Shea, Tim Young, Alix Olsen and Mayda Del Valle.
