Smith College is “an incredibly prestigious, diverse, academically rigorous, socially liberal, and well-respected institution,” located in the consummate college town of Northampton, Massachusetts. A Smith education is all about “finding and pursuing your passions.” Offering “academic freedom,” “Smith doesn’t have course requirements” beyond the major, and “self-scheduled finals” allow students to take exam week at their own pace. “One of the most prominent women’s colleges in the country,” Smith “builds the self-confidence of smart women,” and “most classes, even in math and sciences, are very interdisciplinary and often have a feminist bias.”
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
