Building Smith Community in Boston

As a Club, we organize recreational, professional, and educational events to bring together our members. Our signature events include a Mountain Day Party in the fall, a Holiday Party in the winter, and an annual Tea and Faculty Lecture in the spring.

Promoting Smith College

We support the College by organizing events for prospective Smith College students, coordinating alum interviews, and presenting Book Awards to current students.

We also donate to an endowed scholarship for a Smith College student from Boston.
