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


J-term Classes

Smith non-credit J-term classes are up. Check them out here. Registration starts Dec. 4 (not on Bannerweb). We also have a link to the site under Academics.

You may have seen already, but the Smith Stalker was mentioned on the Grecourt Gate! It was a proud day, indeed, for us. Thanks for the publicity and thanks to everyone who checked us out for the first time.

Let us know if you have any suggestions at

In the meantime, here’s a pretty screenshot of our success.

Ever since we heard about it, we’ve wanted to try milk&cookies, the new Smithie-run cookie delivery service on campus.  Finally, tonight was the night!  Mugs ready, we tried each of the cookies she sells so we can share our newfound knowledge with you.  Here’s what we thought:

Chocolate Chip

This cookie was kind of thin and very sweet.  It was definitely the ‘crunchiest’ of the bunch.

Chocolate and Espresso

As one friend noted, “kinda mocha-y, without too much espresso”.  Still, it packs a punch- you can feel the caffeine in your mouth!  At least, we thought we could. One of our friends said it tasted ‘grainy’, but it’s probably an inevitable result of the ground coffee.  Very, very tasty!  It could definitely keep you going another hour when you’re writing a paper.

The All-Nighter

This cookie was our favorite of the bunch.  A little bit of oatmeal, a little bit of peanut butter and just enough chocolate.  It wasn’t too sweet or intense, just really tasty!  We made yummy noises the entire time we were eating it.  We’d suggest this one if you are trying milk&cookies for the first time!

Also, everyone who drank the milk she brought said it was really good milk, even one of our friends who just doesn’t like milk in the first place!

Overall, we think that milk&cookies is one of the best things on campus right now.  The process was so easy- call, give money, get cookies and milk!  She was a little late but the cookies were still warm and gooey, so we don’t care.  The price was low, too, less than $10 for six cookies with three milks AND delivery.  We’re definitely going to order again sometime soon!

Next time you’re up late studying on a Monday or a Wednesday, make sure you give her a call!  Ordering information here.

Hey Smith Stalker readers! We have (hopefully) everything you need, and now even more. We’re continuing to update and add more information each week to make this the best site for you.

We all have to major in something eventually. Have no idea? Or are you one of the people who’s known what she wants to do from age 5? Either way, you should go to Presentations of the Majors and Minors. For your convenience, we’ve created a page which you can access here. To make it even easier for you, each day the presentations occur, we’ll put information in our daily events post as well.

You’re here, and chances are, you don’t have a car. There are tons of places you want to travel with your club or house, but the PVTA just won’t take you there. In cases like these, it’s time for someone to get van certified. It’s fairly painless and only about 2 (separate) hours out of your life and your house/club mates will love you forever for it. For more information, click here. Each day the certification sessions occur, we’ll post them in our daily events page.

We’ve also just added a link to Forbes Library. Go there: get music, take out a movie, read a book for fun. Anything, just don’t stress.

If you think we’re missing anything or there’s just a link you just have to have, email us at and we’ll create a page or link for you.

In order to help you go green, we have posted a glorious link about recycling at Smith. You can find it under Quick Links as “Smith Recycling” or here. It includes information for Earth Reps, and where, what, and how to recycle.

To save you from flickering lights and ripped screens, we are also including a link to work orders. Remember work orders? The yellow sheets that used to live on your HR’s door… Well, in an effort to go green and centralize the paperwork, Smith has made all work orders be submitted online. You can find the link under Quick Links as “Service Requests/Work Orders” or here.

But Phys Plant is generally filled with all sorts of useful information, so we’re posting a link for that too, here and under Quick Links as “Physical Plant.”
