The First-Year Experience Program

The First-Year Experience Program provides opportunities for you to better get to know Smith and yourself through events and happenings. We ease the transition to college life by helping you find the support you need to adjust to life at Smith and to make connections with classmates, faculty and staff. Events also help you foster friendships with students from other houses and throughout the Five College community. We aim to make your first year enriching and fun, promoting your overall success at Smith.

First-Year Experience Program Schedule

The First-Year Experience program for fall 2024 runs from September 3 to October 13, 2024. The schedule for this program will be available here by August 30, 2024.
