Cristina Jacobs says the range of social options at Smith can be multiplied by five.

Social Life


Cultural opportunities and social happenings are abundant, thanks to a unique consortium of five area institutions -- Smith, Amherst, Hampshire and Mount Holyoke colleges and the University of Massachusetts Amherst.

A Five College Calendar of Events gives up-to-date information on lectures, films, concerts and performances at all five colleges. If you took advantage of the listings in a recent issue, you could have attended workshops with Buddhist monks from Drepung Loseling Monastery during a Festival of Tibet, or you could have helped build homes for local low-income families during the Five College Habitat for Humanity Work Weekend. You could have seen the Dave Matthews Band in concert or attended the annual Midnight Madness party of the University of Massachusetts basketball team. Or you could have signed up for a bus trip to New York City with other college students from the area to visit the museums there.

And there are other privileges. If you're enrolled in a meal plan at Smith, you may arrange for a meal at a neighboring campus while you're there. With a Smith ID, you may borrow books directly from the libraries of any campus. What's more, Smith library patrons can now use the Five College Delivery System to request book loans online directly from the Amherst, Hampshire, Mount Holyoke and UMass main and science libraries for delivery to Neilson Library, usually within two business days.
