West Quad

Students describe living in the houses of the West Quad in many ways: energetic and exciting, a welcoming community, fun traditions and "home." Come bond in the spacious living rooms that hold weekly teas and hearth nights. Do homework and work on projects in comfortable study spaces and then take a break with a game or your favorite TV program in our cozy common areas. Celebrate Quad traditions such as Quadstock, Quadi Gras, Celebrations and Quad Halloween with fellow housemates and Quadies. While the houses of the West Quad are large, they are dedicated to creating an atmosphere that fosters community and a happy, healthy living experience.

Stacey Steinbach, West Quad Area CoordinatorStacey comes to Smith with experience from Western New England University, UMass Amherst, Maryville University, Colorado College, and Semester at Sea.

What are your open hours?
I hold open hours on Mondays from 9:30-12:00 p.m. and 3:00-4:30 p.m.

What are your professional interests?
My professional interests include student leadership development, social justice education, first year experience programming, study abroad programs and of course residential life.

What are your personal interests?
I have a range of personal interests that have to do with connecting with the local community as well as the world. I have a regular yoga practice, participate in a farm share from a local Community Sustaining Agriculture (CSA) farm (I really love kale) and volunteer at a local emergency food pantry. I also love to travel and had the opportunity to travel the world via ship (twice) with hundreds of college students on a program called Semester at Sea and have many amazing stories that I love to share!

What is your education background?
In 1999, I received a bachelor's degree from SUNY Stony Brook in Business Administration and Economics. In 2001, I received a Master of Arts in Higher Education Administration from New York University.

Where did you grow up?
I grew up in Brooklyn, NY and Long Island and have bounced around the country a bit before settling in Western Mass.

What are your two favorite places on campus?
I love that Smith College is a botanical garden and you will often find me pausing to read the tags on the trees. I also love to see the activity during the day on Chapin Lawn.
