Virtual Interviews with Alumnae Volunteers

What is it like to be a student at Smith? Why not ask someone who has been there? The Office of Admission coordinates a worldwide network of alumnae volunteers who are eager to share their experiences and insights about Smith. Request an interview with an Alumnae Volunteer.

Virtual Information Sessions

You have questions? We have answers!

We know you have lots of questions about Smith and we are here to help with virtual information sessions. Led by an admission staff member, our Zoom information sessions provide the opportunity for you to learn more about Smith and have your questions answered. We'll share information about Smith’s distinctive academic opportunities, life on campus, the admission process, financial aid and more. There will also be plenty of time for you to ask your questions during the live Q&A portion of the session.

Registration is required.

Virtual Group Visits

If you have a group of ten or more students from your school or community-based organization, we would be happy to meet with your group on campus or virtually. To schedule a group meeting, please fill out the Group Visit Rquest form. We require at least three weeks advance notice to schedule a group visit.

 

We know that one of the most important voices to hear during the college search process is that of current students. This is why we are offering regular informal chats with current Smithies. Hear all about what it’s like to live, work and study at Smith and ask any questions you may have.

Registration is required.
