The Smith campus is a beautiful natural setting that is as equally impressive as our ACADEMIC environment. Designed by Frederick Law Olmstead, the same designer of CENTRAL PARK in New York City.
Tree-lined paths wind past more than 100 distinctive buildings where you’ll live, learn, work, make friends and explore your passions.
Some of the many BEAUTIFUL spots around campus!
PARADISE POND is one of the most popular & beautful places on campus! The Boat House sits on the banks of the pond, and serves as both a classroom and outdoor center where students can check out canoes, kayaks, rowboats and shells. The dock is a favorite place to sit and appreciate the quiet beauty of the natural setting. In the winter it is also a great place to ice skate!
The CAMPUS CENTER provides students, faculty, and staff an environment for social and intellectual interaction. It's a great place to study, eat or just relax!
Smith's renowned MUSEUM OF ART is recognized as one of the best college art museums in the country! The museum is known for its distinguished collection of more than 20,000 objects from all periods and cultures. Each month a selected student has the opportunity to organize a one-day exhibition using the works on paper collection.
The BOTANIC GARDEN OF SMITH COLLEGE serves as a living museum of plants native to New England and ecosystems all around the globe. “The botanical gardens are one of my favorite places on campus. In the winter, when it's cold, you can step inside the greenhouse and it feels like you're in the tropics - there's even a waterfall!”.
SMITH COLLEGE is also home to 2 Concert Halls.
Sweeney Concert Hall is one of the most sought–after concert halls in the northeast. This beautiful performance space seats more than 600, and its broad stage can readily accommodate the needs of a diverse range of performances, from solo recitals to large choral and orchestral ensembles. Sweeney's excellent acoustics are suitable for both vocal and instrumental performances.
Earle Recital Hall, located on the first floor of Sage Hall, is ideally suited for intimate performance occasions. The hall seats up to 120, and its stage can accommodate two grand pianos or small to medium ensembles.
FORD HALL is home to engineering, computer science, molecular biology, chemistry and biochemistry. It is the largest and most sophisticated facility built exclusively for women science and engineering students, it opened to classes in early 2010.
Smith’s campus is an environment where simple physical beauty—the flaming hues of New England’s fall, the architecture of the buildings, seasonal colors reflected in Paradise Pond—is a constant source of pleasure.
