ABOUT THE CLUB

The Smith College Club of Washington serves alums of Smith College who live or work in the Washington D.C., Maryland, and Virginia areas. Our club is a wonderful place to interact with dynamic and diverse alums of many generations who share a dedication to Smith and community outreach. Our mission is to fortify relations between Smith College alums, Smith College, and the community. We help connect D.C.-based alums with Smith and each other through newsletters, volunteer opportunities, and alum events, including Smith faculty lecturers. Additionally, we support Smith College through presenting book awards, recruiting future Smithies, and interviewing applicants.
