Mountain Day

“Happy Mountain Day! As you know, there will be no classes today, so that all Smith students can have the time to honor this cherished tradition. I know you will find creative ways to celebrate, even if there is no nearby mountain to climb. Wherever you are—whatever your view—I hope this day, this tradition, reminds you of the deep bonds that connect you to this remarkable college and to other Smithies around the world.”—President McCartney, in a letter to the community
