About the Center
Helen Hills Hills Chapel
123-125 Elm Street
Northampton, MA 01063
We are open daily to the Smith community from 7:30 a.m.-9 p.m. for prayer, reflection, conversation, meditation, study and worship.
The Smith Center for Religious & Spiritual Life offers a unique setting for student engagement. You’ll find holiday and holy day celebrations, a cappella concerts, religious text study, intriguing discussions and fresh-baked cookies—sometimes happening all at the same time.
We tailor the programs and activities we offer each semester to students’ questions, concerns and ideas. Some of our popular programs include Soup, Salad & Soul, Mindful Mondays, Muslim Prayer Lunch, weekly meditation, and our annual Interfaith Sundae event.
We meet with students at the chapel, as well as in student houses, dining rooms, the Campus Center and for walks along the pond. Drop by the chapel anytime to visit, hang out or study. Our staff are also available to meet with students by appointment. We want all Smith students to feel there is a place for them here. We work to ensure that you have what you need to thrive here—whether it is food that meets your dietary requirements, listening hearts, religious community to worship or celebrate with, or a companion on your spiritual journey.
