Seniors: Order Your Academic Regalia

Following Smith College tradition, graduating students wear academic regalia for the first time at Rally Day, three months before Commencement. For Commencement, graduating seniors should come dressed in their full regalia.

Seniors may now begin ordering their academic regalia for Commencement.

The regalia ordering page will be live until April 2, 2024, and orders placed by the deadline will be available for pickup at the Smith College Bookstore beginning May 6, 2024. 

Those receiving financial aid have the option of participating in the Regalia Loan Program lottery offered through the Student Government Association. All students will be invited to enter the lottery in January and will be notified in early February as to whether they can receive regalia through this program.

Only students who receive Smith aid and are verified through Student Financial Services are eligible to enter the lottery. Questions regarding this program should be directed to the SGA office at sga@smith.edu.

First Tuesdays

Next event: Tuesday, March 5, 2024
Calling all campus community members! Sponsored by the Office of the President, join your colleagues and peers in the Julia McWilliams Child ’34 Campus Center on the first Tuesday of every month from 8:30–9:30 a.m. for coffee, donuts, and a chance to catch up on happenings around the campus. Bring a friend from your own department or house, or meet a new one.

Give Back, Plate by Plate

Want to lend a helping hand and reduce food waste in the process? Contact the Smith Food Rescue Network to see about helping to donate dining hall leftovers to members of the Northampton community who may be in need. Donations—totaling more than 22,000 pounds since the program’s inception in 2022—most often go to Manna Kitchen, but the Rescue Network may have other local locations in mind as well.
