  • Smith college is founded on a very old legacy. Its roots are in upper class elite white women. It shows. Poor students of color are always despised and have a miserable time. The student and staff body is really really heavily racist and transmisogynist (even in comparison to the rest of the Northampton area). The harassment and exploitation queer and trans students of color face is absurd. The social dynamics are so strained often to the point of being violent and abusive.

The art museum has lots of resources, but who's art do they show?it's open to the public and pretty accessible and they show some nice pieces, but for a school with such a large endowment the arts really don't get much.
