Anonymous: Hii!!! I'll be attending Smith this year and im super excited. I was wondering if students tend to live in the same house during their four years at Smith. Also what house do you live in and what's your favorite thing about it. One more question....whats the social life like?

Hi! Congratulations! Yes, students tend to live in the same house during their for years here, but if you want to switch houses that is totally ok too.

I lived in Duckett House during my first and sophomore year, and really enjoyed it. Plus, the house has a great location (close to downtown and classes). Then I went abroad and met one of my closest friends at Smith, and she convinced me to move to Gardiner House. Even if I hadn’t lived there all four years, it really feels like I did. I would say my favorite thing about it is how fun, open and friendly people are. People usually hang out in the hallways and leave their door open and everyone checks to see how everyone’s day was, oh and we throw some of the best parties on campus.

Social life at Smith is really what you make it. There are different scenes on campus, which I always thought was great because I got to interact with all kinds of people. It also depends on what you’re interested in… for example, if you join crew or a theater group you’re very likely to make many friends through these extracurricular activities.

There is also Northampton and the 5-College area if you want to make friends outside of Smith. Cafes and restaurants downtown are great, and the 5-College area offers a wide variety of activitites you can participate in.

Hope that answers you question!

And feel free to ask more!

This map is part of a very exciting project I am working on for my Chinese Travel Writing class. 
While it is not at all related to my majors (Government and French), I read  the course description and thought to myself, “I have to take this!” Being the travel junkie that I am, all I can say is that this class was a journey in itself. I travelled back in time to medieval China and fast forwarded into the future through our class final project.
We created a Travel Blog where we imagined we went to China for a week. Check it out!

On a balmy night in April…

As I was walking back from my last West African dance class today, I passed by the Botanical Gardens and Paradise Pond. I started thinking how great it is to have little places where you can still enjoy nature, right in the middle of campus. Once academics wind down a little, I am definitely looking forward to taking out a boat and hanging out at the Pond.

For now, I will probably go read a book in the Palm House at the Gardens, sitting there makes you feel like you’ve traveled to a different part of the country or different country even!

Like most things in life, college graduation is bittersweet. On one hand, it means leaving best friends, a beautiful campus, and a place you’ve come to know and love. On the other hand, it signifies an exciting new chapter- increased independence, a new city, and the continued journey of…

""Happiness is not a destination, it is the whole ride. Us 20-year-olds need to stop looking at our boyfriends, our jobs, our weight and our paychecks to find happiness. It will never be there. Our happiness is with us, always. It is deep down where our heart and mind meet. It is in the laughs we have with our friends, the talks we have with our mom, that moment at the end of the day when you get to take your heels off, a beautiful spring day when you hear the birds chirping. We must find happiness in little things everyday — not in trying to get somewhere that we think we will find it"."

For all of those thinking about the next step to take in life! Remember to dream big, be curious and take time to explore your interests and passions.

Whether you’re going to college, you’re in college or you’re leaving college — just remember to look around you make the most of of the resources and think of all the possible life paths you can take!
