The academics at Smith are amazing. There are no core classes and the professors are excellent. If there's something Smith doesn't have, you can easily enroll in a class at one of the other colleges of the Five College Consortium.

    Smith has a beautiful campus just a 5-10 minute walk from Downtown Northampton. Their food is pretty good, house I stayed in was nice, but had no air conditioning. Their field station is one of my favorite place's I've ever been, and the only living building I've experienced.

    Smith College is a place for strong, independent women with a deep desire to learn and to apply what they learn in the classroom to the world outside. It is a place that is full of opportunities if you work to find them, and just going to Smith is an opportunity in and of itself - this college opens doors.

    The college campus is really beautiful with a lot of natural scenery. The students tend to be affluent young women with strenuous academic goals and there is a large LGBTQ presence on campus in addition to other social activism movements. The classes are rigorous regardless of your department but you can always find help if you ask for it.

    Smith has great academic programs, especially within the government and engineering departments. The Smith community is strong and mostly kind. Smith should divest from fossil fuels.

    Smith College is a mixed-bag. Their academic program is excellent and the professors make it their priority for you to succeed. It's a very small campus, so there aren't many activities to be involved in. Research this school before you decide to attend because Smith is not for everyone.

    From what I see about Smith College, it seems to be what my teacher says : a school serious about education. I love the way the campus is built, and the professors there. Obviously, this school should be reviewed by those who are very serious about their education.
