Message from the Director


Dear Smith School Community –

The last few months of the 2013 fiscal year are upon us, and the academic semester is beginning to wind down for Smith School students. Final projects, exams, and commencement are all just around the corner, and groups of students can be found studying throughout Van Munching Hall at all hours of the day and evening.

While our students complete their final assignments, alumni, parents, and friends like you are also working hard to reach this year’s goals for the Smith School Annual Fund. We still have progress to make before June 30, and I hope that if you haven’t yet participated by giving online , you’ll join your peers by doing so today.

Also keep an eye on your mailbox for our fiscal year end communication, which will give you the chance to test your Smith School expertise with a few fun trivia questions (Don’t worry – we’ll grade on a curve!) It will also provide you with the chance to easily give through the mail via a return envelope.

As always, thank you for your support of the Smith School, and for your engagement in the Smith community. I look forward to seeing how quickly we can meet, and even exceed this year’s goals for the Annual Fund.

All the best,

Patty Carocci
Assistant Dean
