  • The top women's college in the country with the steep history of the birthplace of feminism with icons like Gloria Steinem, Betty Friedan, And Sylvia Plath as aluma. The college campus is stunning.  more »

  • I am an Ada at Smith College and I feel fortunate to also call this campus home. I can't imagine a more accommodating place or a more satisfactory undergraduate experience.
  • Respecting the Social Work Graduate program (I know nothing about the undergraduate program): No where else is it commonplace to walk to class and see 6 people crying incessantly, then going to class to hear 4 more people cry. It's a very VERY miserable place. My internship through this school was very difficult. I heard that Smith, to protect its brand, pays our supervisors a stipend and then tell them to be super critical of their work. Everyone I knew in the program loathed their field placements. Also this college prides itself as being open minded and liberal; but racist elitism runs deep in its structure, which makes for a toxic learning environment. Students continuously are protesting the administration, which consistently ignores its students wants and needs. I didn't learn much in the classes since it's repetitive and psychodynamic. The school likes to dehumanize its students to their political demographic status (ie sociocultural location) and overall this was by far the worst education experience of my life; many of the people I met dropped out and many others really really hate their field placements. The academics was so negative that I felt like I was getting a Master's degree in human misery and self hatred. Their teaching style is like "this is the problem, there is no way to fix it, and you are contributing to it."
  • Feminist training camp. Close this Marxist dump down.
  • I'm a refugee. Please give me free things as I've had such a hard time. Please open your for me and screech refugees welcome 😋
  • Diverse and beautiful campus. It looks like a really fun place to go to school. They have a little bit of everything in their little college town.
