    This is my short summary of Smith -- the best way to get to know about Smith is to visit and talk to students! Academics: Excellent, plenty of options. The open-curriculum is the best part with no core classes. Academic Support: Excellent. There’s a resource for every class and subject, be it a tutor or a professor or both. Career Development: Very good. Plenty of opportunities provided for even first-years to start thinking about life after college. Very strong alumnae network. Aaaah, it’s an all girl’s school!: First off, it’s a women’s college. Second, don’t let that scare you. Smith’s academic reputation far outweighs the lack of the male gender, and there are plenty of guys to be found in the five college area. Food: Good, lots of options. Dining staff is very helpful. Housing: Smith boasts strong house communities and a strong history on Princeton Review’s Dorms Like Palaces list. Extracurricular Activities: Many and varied at Smith, with tons of options at the other five colleges as well. Diversity: Very much harped on by the school, but unfortunately there is a lot of separation among the students simply in the form of who people hang out with. Social Scene: Fair. If you’re not interested in the parties on campus, you can go off campus. Facilities: Fair. Libraries are great, campus center a good place to hang out, gym is nice, features a pool and a climbing wall, sometimes crowded. Art museum and plant house great places to visit on campus. Internet: Fair. Slow but usually reliable. Professors: Excellent. Second-rate teachers are the exception to the rule at Smith. Location: Northampton is a fun town to be in and the other four colleges nearby are great. Campus: Gorgeous. Enough said. Sports: Not much school spirit, but a fair variety of club and varsity sports. read full review

    -Visit if you can. You'll learn a lot about the campus if you can just walk around by yourself, away from tour groups. -Talk to current students. Most Smithies will tell you everything they like and don't like about the school--we're very opinionated. -Smith has a fairly sizeable and visible LGBTQ population. Sometimes the school does not emphasize this in their admissions propaganda, but it's definitely true and something to be aware of. We take treating everyone with respect very seriously here. -Smith also has a lot of liberals and moderates-- but that doesn't mean that conservatives aren't welcome. Some of us like having someone to argue with. ;) -Some Smith students are men. We have transpeople on campus, and graduate students who are men. -Just because you go to a women's school does NOT mean you won't ever see men. Guys from other schools take classes here, people from town are on campus, there are male teachers, etc. -Some Smithies are non-traditional aged students called Ada Comstock Scholars. They're pretty cool, and bring a unique perspective to whatever they do. Some of them live on campus, and some life off-campus. -Explore NoHo. It's pretty cool. -If you go to Herrell's Ice Cream in NoHo on your birthday, and show them valid ID to prove it really is your birthday, you can get a free sundae. I highly recommend doing this. -There are four housing areas on campus: the Quad, Elm Street, Center Campus, and Green Street. Each has it's own advantages and drawbacks, and certain stereotypes. However, stereotypes are not that accurate, and all of them are nice places to live. Also, housing will probably place you somewhere you'll like, 9 times out of 10. -If you like Smith, apply! We're now test-optional in our admissions policy, so even if your test scores aren't great, if you're a motivated student, go for it! read full review
