A Culture of Generosity

Eugenia Rogers ’25

Environmental science and policy major

“Coming from Sierra Leone, I would not have been able to attend Smith College without a full scholarship. It is in the same spirit of generosity that I created the Eugenia M.B. Rogers Youth Foundation, to give young girls like me a chance to dream big dreams.”

Carly Heath

Catering Manager, Dining Services

“[Generosity at Smith is] recognizing the importance to be kind, and to do what you can to help others. The root of human connection is helping others, and allowing yourself to accept help.”

Erin Pineda

Phyllis Cohen Rappaport ’68 New Century Term Assistant Professor of Government

”Smith students enter the classroom with so much curiosity and passion. They are opinionated, but also very generous with me and each other. It never ceases to amaze me how caring and careful they are with each other’s ideas, arguments, and questions.“

Erin Pineda

Anna Erickson ’24

Post-baccalaureate Scholar, NIH Center for Cancer Research

“I have been fortunate enough to utilize Praxis at Smith. The summer going into my junior year, I did research at Vanderbilt for 10 weeks. I formed connections in that lab that lead me back for a second summer. Without the generosity of Smith, I would not have been able to take on such a project.”
