Alumnae Admissions/Prospective Students


With a strong national reputation, Smith remains at the forefront of higher education. The College’s creation of an Admission Strategic Plan further strengthens Smith’s commitment to attracting a diverse student body filled with the best and brightest students Central Massachusetts has to offer. Why not help? We have lots of ways to help spread the word about Smith and the opportunities it affords young women – from innovative programs of study to a rich campus life. It’s easy, it doesn’t take a lot of time, and your contribution to our recruitment efforts will have a profound impact on Smith’s future.

Alumnae Admissions activities:

  • Attend college fairs at local high schools and introduce Smith to seniors and their families.
  • Contact high school guidance counselors and encourage them to introduce Smith College to their best high school seniors
  • Contact students who have asked the College for informative materials and speak about Smith in an open, engaging way.
  • Encourage qualified seniors and transfer students to apply to Smith and, in spring, encourage the accepted students to enroll.
  • Conduct alumnae interviews. Though no longer required by the College, alumnae interviews provide depth in a student’s application and can be very influential in close decisions.
  • Assist with Smith Book Awards program and attend high school spring assemblies to make the presentation on behalf of the BSCC to promising junior students
  • Attend a sendoff event for new and returning Smith students in late summer.
