I was looking for a small, liberal arts college and when I visited Smith I thought it was beautiful. Furthermore, the students at this school definitely helped with my decision. The reason for this is because some seniors used their Sunday to tour me around as I couldn't make it during the regular tour slots. They were very courteous and nice. The admissions counselor was also very sweet when she interviewed me.
I think the Smith College course curriculum is amazing and it is one of the reasons I chose the school. We have no requirements besides our Writing Intensive and major requirements. There are a variety of classes we can choose from and we can almost always get into these classes. They also make us take classes outside of our major as in order to graduate there are a certain amount of credits you need to take outside of your major.
