President's message

Welcome to The Smith College Club of New York City!  The Club, which is one of the oldest and largest in the Smith Club international network, serves Smith College alumnae living and working in the New York metropolitan area.  We are a strong and vibrant community of Smith women, and we celebrate many of the beloved traditions of Smith, such as Friday afternoon teas.  


The Smith College Club of New York City provides the opportunity to connect with Smith women locally, especially important in a major and culturally vibrant city such as New York.  We share the common bond of all experiencing time on a special campus where we made lifelong friendships.  The Club introduces you to an inspiring group of women from all class years, who are no surprise talented, intelligent, and friendly.  We serve as a support system for each other personally and professionally.  


Bring a Smith friend or come yourself to a Club event and see what the Club can offer you. The Club, mostly volunteer led, offers numerous events each year, over 70 in the last year alone, and raises significant funds for current Smith College students from New York City, through the Club's Annual Scholarship Benefit.  The more you become involved with the Club and its activities, the more you will realize the true benefits of being a member of this Club.  


Yours sincerely,

Phoebe Gillette Slanetz, Class of 1996

President, The Smith College Club of New York City
