How Smith Feels

Smith is empowering. You will follow in the footsteps of amazing women who chose to make a difference. Smith students become congresswomen and journalists, forensic pathologists and bankers, professors and engineers. Whether you imagine yourself a scientist, an artist, an anthropologist, a writer, an architect, a dancer, or an economist, Smith is the best place to start.

Smith is transforming. You will learn what it means to be you, and how you and the world weave together. You will have memorable relationships with an extraordinary group of students, faculty and alumnae, and you will come to know the feeling that you will make a difference.

Smith is heady, nervy, intellectually exciting. Smith students are public-spirited, supportive of one another, and passionately interested in the world, from village to globe.

Smith is home. Students live in large welcoming wood-frame or brick houses on a leafy campus — complete with a pond and a waterfall — in the lively New England town of Northampton.

When you come to Smith, you join a community for life. There are more than 47,000 Smithies living all over the U.S. and the world. Different as they are, they all feel that they share an experience that has opened doors in their lives and made them who they are. You, too, can become part of that community.
