Orientation is an important start to your experience as a new student at Smith. It introduces you to the campus community and resources, providing a solid framework on which to build your overall success. The week before the start of classes, all new first-year, transfer, visiting/exchange students and Ada Comstock Scholars gather to learn about the college and get to know each other. All new students are expected to participate fully in the entire Orientation program.
