On Sunday, January 17, it's time for our first Connect Event of the year, with 
Jodi Kaplan '89 and the 4th Annual Booking Dance Festival NYCThis five-hour dance extravaganza starts at 4:30 pm at Lincoln Center and includes works from 20 dance companies, including ballet, modern, hip hop, contemporary and much more.

Join us on Tuesday, January 26 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm for an evening with a
ward-winning Latina Feminist Dior Vargas '09 on the Intersection of Race and Mental Illness. Vargas, a mental health activist, will talk about her work leading the People of Color and Mental Illness Photo Project, where she explores how people of color with mental illness are portrayed - or not portrayed - in today's media.

We also invite you to check out two upcoming events sponsored by the College through The Smith College Business Network:

The event is at the United Jewish Federation Building at 130 East 59th Street; you must register by January 18 to attend.
