In addition to enjoying Reunion traditions and class programs, expand your intellectual horizons through lectures and presentations by faculty and administrators. Listen to student experiences to learn more about Smith today. Explore the schedule to plan your visit. 

Checking In

The majority of classes must check-in at Seelye Hall to be included in their class attendance count. The classes of 1943, 1948, 1953, 1958 must check-in at Northrop/Gillett House. The Alumnae House will NOT be a check-in site this year, as we have found Seelye to be an easier location because of its proximity to parking, and to central campus.

Stop by your check-in location (Seelye Hall or Northrop/Gillett House) to receive your name badge with your housing assignment and meal reservations. You will also receive a key card to access class headquarters and your house for the weekend. Then head over to your class headquarters.

If you arrive after registration closes, call campus safety at 413-585-2490; they will let you into your house. However, you must stop at check-in the next morning to check in and get your key card.
