Alumnae Engagement


The time you spent at Smith was formative, and life after Smith can be just as valuable. Now you can bask in the perks that come with being a member of the college’s network. As you make your way in the world, and make the change you want to see in the world, you’ll have 53,000 Smithies rooting for you and supporting you along the way. You can count on Smith for access to groundbreaking events and speakers, opportunities to make new memories, and career advice and connections. While being a Smith alum is a joy, it’s also a responsibility. Your experience at Smith rests on the shoulders of alums who came before you and who gave before you, and now it’s your chance to help the next generation have four formative years—and then some.

Financing the Future: Investing in Our Students

In a historic announcement, beginning in the fall of 2022, Smith College will eliminate loans from its undergraduate financial aid packages for students receiving need-based institutional grants and replace the loan amount with grants from the college.
