On December 10, 2019, Maryland Smith hosted Stacks on Smith, a night for students to relax during finals week and enjoy a pancake breakfast.
Launched in 2013 by the Dean’s Student Advisory Council (DSAC), Stacks on Smith began as a way to help promote community unity and establish new Smith School traditions. For students like Ned Engelbride ’20, a finance major, the event presents an ideal setting to interact with both peers and professors during a busy period in the semester.
“We came to spend time and connect with people outside the classroom. It’s been great to continue building on the supportive community we have at Smith,” says Engelbride.
For Tim Pang ’20, a finance major, Stacks on Smith provides a welcome boost to help deal with the rigor of finals week. “Finals have definitely been stressful, but events like these are helpful in trying to stay motivated,” says Pang.
In addition to pancakes and various toppings, students were also treated to scrambled eggs, bacon or turkey sausage and fresh fruit salad.
