Welcome back, everyone!

As you can tell from the lack of a post, we smith stalkers decided to extend our break by one day.  Now we’re back and ready to go!  Well, more or less.  Here’s what you can do this Tuesday:

Telling Love’s Story: AIDS Memorial

  • Tomorrow is World AIDS Day, so take some time to attend this lecture and spread awareness.  It begins at 7:00 pm in the Carroll Room to learn about living with AIDS and ends at 9:00 pm with a candle ceremony and the creation of quilts.  

Climbing Wall

  • Need to relax before finals?  Run down to Ainsworth Gym and check out the climbing wall!  There will be a clinic from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm to teach you how to do it.


  • From 12:30 to 1:00 in Sweeney Concert Hall, catch Music in the Noon Hour!  They will be playing Brahms Piano Trio No. 2 in C Major, Opus 87.

What’s going on?

Nothing.  Actually, we can’t access the smith site or novell webaccess, soooo we can’t look for events even if there is anything.  Therefore, we at the smith stalker are giving ourselves an early thanksgiving break from posting events.  Happy Thanksgiving, y’all!

Chase/Duckett, Cushing/Emerson, Cutter/Ziskind, King/Scales, and Tyler have spaghetti and meatballs tonight with bread, green beans, and chocolate cake.

Here’s a message from the Concert Chair of RecCouncil:

If you could bring one musical artist to Smith in the spring who would it be? Please keep in mind we do have a budget. We are sorry, but Britney Spears and Madonna are not coming. Email


2 days till break!

Perhaps because break is so soon and everyone wants time off, there aren’t many events to help you procrastinate. In fact, there is one.


Caroline Bruzelius, Cogan Professor of Art History, Duke University, will be lecturing in Hillyer/Graham Hall at 4:30 p.m about “The Dead Come to Town: Preaching, Burying and Building in the Medieval Italian City.”


It seems like it’s soup night everywhere tonight!  Out of all the choices, the best meal can be found in  King/Scales, Cutter-Z and Chapin, as they are serving Pepper Pot Soup and Hot Lo Mein Noodles.  A little bit of spice, a little bit of carbs, everything you need to get your energy up for the week!

Thanksgiving yet?

Not quite, but it’s close!  Until then, here’s what to do this Sunday:


  • Want to start your vacation a little early?  Go to the weekly Exploding Tiger party at Bishop’s Lounge from 10:00 PM to 2:00 AM.  This is a 21+ event.


  • If you’re interested in social work, participate in the Coalitional Organizing Workshop held in the Carroll Room from 1:00 to 3:00 PM.  Facilitated by Dean Jennifer Walters and Brandon Buehring, this panel will provide time for discussion, questions and networking.


Tonight, Cushing/Emerson, Lamont, and Tyler have Rosemary pork tenderloin, baked sweet potatoes, carmalized onions, and chocolate ice cream. Sounds yum!


Sorry I’m late!


The Fall Faculty Dance Concert will be on it’s last show tonight at 8 pm in Theatre 14. Tickets are $5 for students and $9 for the general public. Get there early — I hear it’s amazing and may sell out.


Like musical theatre? Go see Leading Ladies present Pippin for the last time tonight at 8 pm in Davis Ballroom. Tickets are $5 for 5-college students and $7 for the general public.

Autumn Serenade

Go to the annual fall choral concert with performances by Glee Club, Chamber Singers, Groove, and Chorus. It starts at 8pm in Sweeney Concert Hall and is free.

Bag Day

Northampton celebrates Bag Day today, where from 10 am to 4 pm at the Museum Shop and other downtown businesses, you can get 20% off one item.


Okay, there’s not a lot of variation tonight, just lots of NACHOS!  Cheap and easy to make; you can see why Smith made this choice (not that we’re complaining).  Enjoy!
