Come meet and mingle with Smithies at the Bridget Moore ('79) Gallery and hear about everything we have planned for the months ahead. Remember: Admission is free for members, so join now or renew your membership today.

  • Our first Salon of the season, featuring a lively discussion about women's education, female role models and the Smith experience. Held on Wednesday, September 16, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm and hosted by Dr. Patricia Tidwell, this event focuses on A Women's Education by President Emerita Jill Ker Conway, our 2015 Annual Scholarship Benefit Speaker and the College's first female president. This event is held on the Upper West Side at the home of an alumna; click here for more information.

The Smith College Club of New York City mourns the untimely and tragic death this summer of Arlene Allison Ellis '06, a talented artist who designed the commemorative gift cards for the June 12, 2015 Smith in New York Networking Breakfast and shared great insights at our 2015 Annual Meeting. Our thoughts and prayers are with her mother, family and friends. She will live on in our memories and in her art: http://www.arleneellis.com.  

We look forward to seeing you this fall.
