Welcome to All New First-Years, Transfers, Visiting Students & Ada Comstock Scholars

Smith is a vibrant place of interesting people and experiences. Our goal is for you to arrive on campus prepared to begin your Smith experience. We’re very excited to have you join us, and we look forward to greeting you during Orientation. To help you prepare, this website provides important information about the campus, introduces you to specific parts of our community and refers you to other Smith websites with more details. If you have any questions, please contact us. We’re happy to help!

Fall 2021 Orientation

We are currently planning for an in-person Orientation August 27–September 1 and will follow state guidelines as they are made available to us. A full schedule will be available on this website in mid-August. Other details will be updated as they are confirmed. Please see the Orientation webpage.
