"Mountain Day offers a surprise and joyful break from classes, signaled by the ringing of the college bells on a crisp autumn day, Smith students take this time to honor a cherished tradition - enjoying fall activities, like hiking or apple picking or just lounging on campus. Wherever you are - whatever your view - we hope this day, this tradition, reminds you of the deep bonds that connect you to this remarkable college and to other Smithies around the world."
