What Students Are Saying

4.28 Average Rating
Smith is hard. Sometimes it feels too hard, but when you finish a difficult assignment its almost like you've completed a workout. You feel confident and successful. The professors push you, but they are always willing to go an extra mile to help you out.
Katherine class of 2014
Depends on department, but you'll definitely encounter some tough classes during your time here.
Sally from Lawrence, KS
MUCH harder than expected. Smith has a pretty high acceptance rate but that's mainly because students who apply are usually the tough cookies (and we don't get any guys or girls who crave the guys applying).
Laura from Windsor, CA
Classes can range from very challenging to easy, depending on professors, your study habits and skill sets. It is not possible to coast by at Smith, work is always serious and intense. Nonetheless, help is available when you need it as Smith makes certain that students never want for guidance in academic arenas.
Megan from Stafford Springs, CT
The classes are as hard as you want them to be. There is always tutoring and office hours.
Ramlah from Brooklyn, NY
Smith is a very rigorous academic institution and you have to keep a good schedule to keep up. But there are many resources available to you such as professors' office hours and the tutoring centers. Your success boils down to your effort and hard work definitely pays off. You leave the class feeling like you really understand the material if you stick with it.
