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, SEC does it all from small events to major concerts and everything in between.

Upcoming Events

Spring 2016 Event Calendar

SEC Spring 2016 Speaker

SEC was thrilled to host Oscar-nominated, Emmy and Tony Award-winning actress Viola Davis on Wednesday, March 2 at
7 pm in John M. Greene Hall!

The event was moderated by Africana Studies Professor Andrea Hairston and was a huge success.

Member Benefits

As a member of 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 (Program Coordinator in the OSE), SEC is a student-run, hands-on organization. You get to meet exciting people who share your interests, and bring events to campus that Smith students eagerly anticipate.

Weekly Meetings

The Student Event Committee meets every Wednesday at 6:15 pm in the Campus Center TV Lounge. Everyone is welcome.

Special Events

The special events committee of 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.
