Through the Five Colleges, Inc., a consortium that includes Smith and nearby Amherst, Hampshire and Mount Holyoke colleges and the University of Massachusetts, there are significant resources and opportunities, including cross-registration for classes.
Smith graduates learn to think clearly, analyze complex situations accurately, write well, speak persuasively and adapt creatively to new technologies and changing circumstances. This combination of comprehensive knowledge and flexibility is the hallmark of the liberal arts education at Smith. Admission to Smith is highly competitive, with fewer than 20 percent of international students offered admission. Academic performance, standardized test scores, and writing ability are important factors in the evaluation.
I have 27 years of experience in teaching, higher education administration, admissions, and enrollment management. I’ve been in international admission at Smith College for the past 9 years. I appreciate the rich contributions our students from Canada, our “neighbor to the north,” make to our diverse student body at Smith, which is comprised of 14% international students from some 70 countries.
