The administration is condescending, rude, and utterly unhelpful. Students are seen as a liability if they deviate from the norm, and when things get hard the college pushes students away rather than helping them. Any problems? They?re your problems alone, even when it?s the administration?s fault. Deans brush off student concerns and expect you to have memorized the distorted, inaccessible inner workings of the college. I have been struggling with pointless logistical problems since beginning my Smith career, and I continue to struggle with administration until now, 3 days before commencement.
The student body is vitriolic and hateful. They play the ?oppression olympics? for social status. Social status relies on how vocal you can be about your own marginalized communities. Class consciousness is nonexistent in both the student body and administration. Staff are treated poorly and paid very low wages.

After I left I definitely had a better sense of myself and the kind of independence I wanted. Class effort depends on the teachers, but overall requires you have good writing and critical thinking skills. Professors are available to help and there are also free tutors and TAs and writing centers. Smith has lots of hidden opportunities for funding, so keep an eye out for those. The social justice scene is definitely intense and is one of the things I didn't enjoy. There were lots of strong and militant opinions that made campus sometimes feel very angry and aggressive. If you do go, do branch out of your house community early, take an exercise class, and be able to call people out on their bs.
