We visited the Smith College Tuesday November 11, 2014 for Fall Preview. College visits, especially prestigeous private universities, are like a sport for our family. We have toured Harvard, Yale, Wellesley, Vanderbuilt, Emory, University of Chicago, Loyola of Chicago, New York University and more. This was the best college tour we have been to. We loved the campus. The students... More

My daughter attends Smith College. I cannot say enough good things about this wonderful college. The housing is wonderful! The food is excellent. Lamont House is homey and has the most beautiful dining room.

If you're in the area, you obviously don't want to miss a visit to this beautiful campus, worth exploring for an hour or so. Don't miss view from little bridge over the Mill River and Paradise Pond. ...Great library, too.

The hall and attached covered patio area, where I attended the wedding of a relative, was a picturesque spot. The dining area was upstairs (indoors), reception/dancing downstairs. The ceremony was held outside on the covered patio (as was a cocktail hour post photos, pre dinner) overlooking the river and tree lined grounds. This spot would be AMAZING in the fall... More

My daughter grew up in a small town in Maine. The Smith experience has fostered the opportunity for her to build a foundation well grounded and confident, without being conceited; as an intelligent young woman with much to offer, first and foremost. I can not say enough about what this experience has meant to her, and will continue to mean... More

Smith College has a beautiful campus. Paradise Pond is a site to see with the athletic fields in the distance, row boats and paddle boards out on the water, the Presidents's House on the hill and the Japanese gardens off to the side. There is a great vibe on the campus. Lots of happy, smiling people walking around.

I long had a fantasy about attending Smith so it was great to finally make it here with my college bound daughter. When we heard that Maya Lin would be speaking during our visit, we happily waited in line to hear her. The experience gave us a feel for what both campus and community life was like - everyone seemed... More
