The International Student Handbook is an important resource for international students at Smith. It contains helpful information, from important emergency contact numbers to listings of resources at Smith.

The handbook acts as a guide to customary practices for international students in the United States, and discusses customs and expectations, from drinking alcohol, holidays international students may not be familiar with, and expectations in the United States around "tipping" for services. It even includes a brief guide on converting sizes for clothing.

The handbook is a useful resource that can be referred to, especially when the staff at the international students office aren't available. We strongly recommend every international student take the time to read it.
