    Smith is expensive. But, with such a giant endowment, almost everyone receives some type of financial aid. Our work-study program is huge, and I think I only know two people who aren't on scholarship (although it's not really my go-to topic of conversation). The quality of education is excellent and the connections you get from going here are extensive. Smith isn't a huge school, but alumnae are always willing to lend a fellow Smith person a hand.

    It really depends on how much financial aid you get. I got FANTASTIC aid so I have no complaints but I also have friends paying full tuition (which is A LOT-then again, they are v wealthy).

    Books, books, and more books is my answer! You learn to read then read to learn, after all, so the more you consume of books the more knowledge you'll obtain! The Raven bookstore in downtown NoHo is great for those hungry for more book knowledge! Also, smith has free coffee in the global studies center!

    Great financial aid and the small class sizes mean more access to professors which helps make the quality of education better than larger universities.
