smith does not provide a social life. everything is academic.
I totally disagree. Smith isn't into the stereotypical frat party thing, but there are, of course, many, MANY other ways of making friends.

While at Smith, the average student is most likely going to feel the need to expand her social scene. There are not a lot of big parties on campus, so it takes a bit of effort to have fun at night. First-year students usually only get so far as house parties and big keggers, which usually involves a trip to TAP (The Amherst Party) or UMass’ frat row. Often, witnessing the drunken stupidity of these parties discourages students from a second visit. As students become comfortable with their friends, they often venture to bars, clubs, and concerts to expand their nightlife experience. Sometimes the expansion of a student’s social life just means that they go to room parties in other houses.
Regardless, having fun every weekend usually requires a bit of creativity. The administration has made it very difficult for houses to throw parties, so most take place in individual rooms. Aside from the fact that students run the risk of getting caught, it can get boring hanging out and drinking with the same people. The house parties that do happen are usually packed with lots of drunk people just looking to hook up. Some students find this frustrating, while others are perfectly content to hang out on campus with their friends or at campus parties. The key to having a fulfilling nightlife at Smith is finding people you have fun with and want to do the same things as you.
