Read Our Tumblr

We have a Tumblr established last year for current students. Updated about twice a week during the school year, the Tumblr is managed by our office student staff and is a good place to find tips about events, as well as news from the office. Check out the Smith International Tumblr. (New posts will return in the Spring Semester)
