Passport to Life at Smith

Click to view

"Passports" are distributed to all students at the start of the fall and spring semesters.

Fall "Passport to Life at Smith" workshops are designed to help students thrive in their work and life on campus.

Spring "Passport to Life After Smith" workshops encourage students to prepare for life outside of college.

Both series of workshops introduce students to the variety of work-and-life-related offices available at Smith, including the Center for Work & Life, which develops original programming in collaboration with its Student Advisory Board.

Support for this program is provided by Karen and George James.

Registration Policy
Smith students are prioritized, but anyone in the Smith and 5-college community may register for a workshop. We will fill most workshops on a first-come, first-serve basis. However, sometimes we will offer a workshop (like 'Leadership for Rebels') for which we require a short application. For those workshops, an early application is not a guarantee of admission.

How do I enroll?
Registrations will be accepted throughout the semester on a space-available basis. Just select your workshops and submit your registration!

Waitlist policy
When a workshop is full, you'll be waitlisted in the order in which your registration was received, and will get an e-mail as soon as a spot opens up for you.

If you have questions about Center for Work & Life workshops, please email us or give us a call. Jessica Bacal, Director, is at x4914. Ally Einbinder, Program Assistant, is at x4678.
