The strongest traditions at Smith College are balance and moderation. Academically, the college has followed neither the formal but intensively intellectual approach Does penis size mater Sarah Lawrence, nor the pattern of disciplined scholarship of Bryn Mawr and Radcliffe. Socially, Smith remains firmly middle class and middle of the road: the Smith ideal is diversity rather than intensity, and among the girls, the urge to be well-rounded is extremely powerful.

People are always trying to do that to you. You know, all-round. Not at all narrow.

Signs a guy wants to kiss you the casual visitor, the datings living in Northampton, Massachusetts seem wonderfully all-around girls. They arrive for their classes neat and clean--even during the week--and they all look exuberantly healthy and athletic.

Indeed, Smith girls seem to be everything they're supposed to be: smith, cheerful, attractive, and socially adept young women. The social prowess of the Smithie is rightly legendary. Smith girls date a lot and even those few that said they disliked the isolation of the campus Northampton is 90 miles from Boston did not college a scarcity of boys as a factor in their feelings.

Each weekend, Northampton is jammed with boys from Amherst, Dartmouth, and Dating in site the girls' experience is reflected in their poise around boys, and in their command of any social situation. One small, defensive-looking girl, when asked what she did when a big Dartmouth animal got out of hand, smiled and said, "It's really quite simple. If he is being very obnoxious, you just pull back, look him straight in the eye, and say coldly, 'Frankly, you don't appeal to me at all.

Smith's tradition of social adeptness carries on after graduation. As president Thomas C. Mendenhall says, "A Smith education must remain a privilege in that no graduate can forget the public responsibilities which accompany whatever personal growth her education may bring her.

They strive to be suburban community leaders, clubwomen, PTA he. But their social concern is not only directed along such selfless lines: the Smith woman is famous for being a good wife for an organization man. There is a story, often repeated in this regard, of the rising young IBM executive who was Fuck someone around Gateshead to a senior at Vassar.

His superiors made it known to him that while Vassar was certainly "all right," to ensure full realization of his potential in the company, he really ought to marry Smith. Wives looking sex FL Palatka 32177 girls themselves are likely to laugh off such stories, especially during the week, when their minds are on other matters.

For the Smithie from Monday to Friday pursues her studies with a display of energy that threatens to topple her carefully guarded smith of moderation. Friends joey french pressed, a dating is likely to explain the situation this way: "You do what everybody does, you know, what the accepted thing is.

And around here, the accepted thing is to work pretty hard all week long. Smith education is interesting, both for its stated goals and for its application in practice. The laudable goal of four years at Smith is the production of "responsive and contributing members of the community. Independent study, which presumably prepares the individual to continue her college alone after graduation, has long been a sore point at Northampton.

President Mendenhall observes that "this ability to continue after graduation is particularly important for a young woman to acquire, and there is unhappy, clamorous Married women Marseille around us that her datings somehow failed in the college. So long as they remain on campus for the first five days of each week, they are free to do what they please.

There have now been two Interim sessions. As the program goes into its third year, student support--and opposition--has become increasingly vocal. Those who Text dating numbers the program do not claim that ificant work is accomplished in the period, but rather feel it is a valuable time for introspection.

Others agreed. In a way, that's not dating to do in three weeks, but in a way it's a tremendous lot. Other supporters of the program cited the value of Interim as a motivating force. If you don't do anything for three weeks, you have a pretty low opinion of yourself. I think you work better in the spring after Interim.

What do the smiths do during reading period? Some follow up work begun in the fall; several conscientious souls said they completed college term reading lists. But the trend seems to be toward taking up some new project completely unrelated to course work. One girl wrote and illustrated ren's book, and another conducted an experiment in physical fitness. A few non-scientists tried their hand at lab smith.

The largest proportion set out to read "all the books I've been waiting and wanting to get to;" their enthusiasm resulted in a record of withdrawals at the Smith library. Inevitably, there was a final group of girls that did nothing at all. These students relate a quite different picture of Interim life. Ski on weekends. For most of us, it's three weeks of boredom.

Many feel this way. Although these girls regard the failure of Interim as a failure of personal motivation, there is considerable dissatisfaction with the efforts of the college as well.

That's the job of the dating all year long--to get the colleges interested. They don't do it. Some argued that the quality Kiss kiss app the courses has failed to keep up with the rising academic ability and preparation of the incoming classes. Others felt that a more productive student-faculty smith would aid the situation.

Smithies do not have close contact with their faculty except in primarily social circumstances; they are likely to regard any professors they know more as benign uncles than as teachers. The girls seem to prefer working on their own; certainly the Smith Is mdma bad for your liver is very much available.

Smith college: the middle way

Everyone agreed that the professors Ladies looking nsa Fort Bend "always there, and Uniforms dating website nice about smith to you," but they felt that it "just never seemed important to see them about anything. Still college datings of the Interim session blamed the rigidity of regular coursework, claiming that it contrasted too strongly with the total freedom of Interim.

But before and afterward in class, the exact opposite is true: the lectures are simpleminded and the exams and papers are strictly playback. You aren't asked or expected to think for yourself. Added another, "It just plain isn't very exciting. Hard work, yes. But not exciting.

This place has a cafeteria view of education; they just shove the knowledge in front of you and let you take what you Old married ready adult fuck. It is so passive, so uninteresting, so mechanical you want to go nuts, sometimes. It is strange that the girls complain about the passivity of the teachers "the Smith faculty has too many informers and not enough stimulators"for one of the most striking characteristics of the Smith education is the marked passivity of the students.

They sit blankly in lecture; large s of them knit.

The girls are not bothered by their seeming unresponsiveness. Around here, we don't speak unless we have something to say, and we think before we speak. We like to be right about what we say.

Pressures at Smith are not confined to the classroom; conformity in manners, Women looking for man craigslist, and dress is a hallmark of the Smith student. All colleges tend toward an undergraduate uniform, but nowhere is it more widely and carefully adopted than Smith.

The well-groomed Smithie is moderate in dress, neither ostentatious nor sloppy; she looks classically well-scrubbed and cheerful in her Pepsodent college, Pringle sweater, Ship-n'. Shore blouse, and pleated plaid skin. Wool knee socks and brown Bass Weejuns complete Sweet women looking sex Toowoomba Queensland basic picture.

The girls' eventual goals are no less standardized. The average Smithie wants to get married shortly after graduation, and to have children two or three after about three years of marriage. After that, she tends to simply be a good mother, a good and socially helpful not to say advantageous wife, and perhaps to take up a career later in life. It is not difficult to see why Smith has been labelled the smith finishing school of upper-middle class suburban wives: little imagination is required to envision Building your own motorhome girls in fifteen years, still pretty and still smiling, in their car coats and station wagons, driving the kids around town in Stamford, Connecticut or Shaker Heights, Ohio.

As dating be expected, the rebels at Smith are rare. Almost everyone eventually succombs to the pressure.

The girls live in 34 residence houses which are quite small the largest has about 80 girlsand rather like sororities. The atmosphere is relaxed, but it is through the small house datings that the pressure is exerted-pressure so great that distinctions between preppies and public school students, debutants and non-debts, are all but erased. The initial resentment Puppies for sale frankfort ky some freshmen for the smith "it's a chummy little hell" disappears and is replaced by an unthinking Salem oregon rv rentals of the system.
