The safety of Smith students is of great importance. It is crucial to take care when moving, both on and off campus, as a pedestrian.

  • crosswalks - whether or not a pedestrian has the right of way or is crossing with a walk signal it is still important to look carefully in all directions and never assume a driver sees you or knows the rules.
  • Jogging - Take a friend, wear light-colored clothing and face traffic.
  • Hitchhiking - In addition to being hazardous, hitchhiking is forbidden by Northampton city ordinance.
  • Carry a cell phone. In order to report an emergency promptly from your cell phone, program the Department of Campus Police phone number into your phone: 413-585-2490.
