The Smith College Events Management Office (EMO) works with Smith faculty and staff and external organizations to plan and execute high-quality, successful events on and off campus. Whether you’re planning a small wedding or a major conference, we’re here to consult with you on your proposed event and dates, conduct an initial review, and offer ideas and recommendations. We can supply event and budget checklists, floor plans, a planning template and logistical advice to meet a wide variety of needs.
Planning Your Virtual Events
See our guidelines for scheduling virtual meetings and other events by reserving a new “location” in 25Live called Virtual Event. Learn more on our Forms & Resources page.
