Happy New Year Smithies! We're back and we're hitting the ground running. Check out some exciting upcoming events and opportunities to network, learn, and grow. 

Admissions Volunteers Needed

Many thanks to the 30+ alumnae who have already interviewed one or more local Smith applicants. Due to a recent surge in requests for off-campus interviews, we need additional alums to complete interviews by the end of January. These interviews give applicants a chance to learn more about life at Smith while simultaneously allowing them to show a side of themselves not captured in the written application. 


Graduates of all class years are welcome. Guidelines and resources are available for first-time participants. Please contact the Alumnae Admissions Coordinators ( and ) to sign up or receive additional information.
