A Culture of Community

Juliana Makonise ’25

“Smith has created a space for individuals from across the world to converge in an accessible, equitable, and inclusive environment which fosters intellectual and interpersonal growth. The diverse student organizations and house cultures have created more avenues for people to find belonging and support as they pursue their goals.”

Sunny Windorski ’20

Health Educator, Schacht Center for Health & Wellness

“I love being part of the Smith community—Smith brings together people with so many interests and experiences. Getting to learn about these experiences and bring them together in the work we do is what makes my job so interesting.”

Johanna Brewer

Assistant Professor of Computer Science

”To me, community at Smith centers around our common goal of creating positive social change. Our togetherness comes not from our similarity, but out of a celebration of our diversity.“

Emma Guest-Consales ’90

President, Guides Association of New York City

“The alum network is extraordinary—when I meet another Smithie, no matter when they graduated, I know I’m meeting a kindred spirit. I feel like the Smith community will always be there for me and my daughter Nicoletta, class of 2022.”
