Greetings, Philly Smithies!
Welcome to our new-and-improved Smith College Club of Philadelphia website. Having kept a pretty spare site in the past, we’ve expanded to keep you up-to-date on Club activities and information.
Our website isn’t the only thing undergoing revitalization—after a few years of sporadic activity, SCCoP is coming back to life! In April 2011, 11 local Smithies met to get the ball rolling again.
And now it’s your turn to get involved! According to our charter, our first task is to elect officers. We need at least 30 votes! To do this, we hope you’ll join us for our Annual Meeting.
Smith College Club of Philadelphia Annual Meeting 2011
Wednesday, May 18, 2011
Arthur Ross Gallery, University of Pennsylvania
For our annual meeting, please join us at UPenn’s Arthur Ross Gallery for a tour of Girl Culture, photographs by Lauren Greenfield which explore contemporary culture for girls, addressing issues such as sexuality, body image, and weight loss culture. Gallery Director and University Curator, Lynn Marsden-Atlass, will give a gallery talk and we will enjoy wine and hors d’ouevres. We will reserve the last 15 minutes for club business, including the election of officers. Thank you to Sheila Raman ’86 for helping to organize this event!
Please RSVP by May 11 by sending the April 2011 Newsletter tear-off (Click Here to Download) with your check made out to Smith College Club of Philadelphia.
In “Notes to Seller,” please provide your name and the phrase “Annual Meeting.”
The Arthur Ross Gallery is located at 220 S. 34th Street, Philadelphia, and is easily accessible by public transportation. Click here for more on location and directions.

So sorry I could not make the May 18th meeting — I am hoping that I will be able to get to the “18th” Happy Hour sometime this summer. I cannot attend the June 11th Happy Hour due to a previous commitment to attend the Belmont Stakes on Long Island (a friend and I are attending all the Triple Crown races this year — sort of a “bucket list” thing!). Best wishes to all the Smith Club members and congratulations on a successful meeting where so much was accomplished.
Excellent work Smithies! Sorry I could not attend the event last week, but I look forward to getting involved!

I am glad the Philly Smith Club is back up and running. I look forward to meeting local alums.
I am a graduate of the Social Work School. I have a private practice in Center City. Starting Sept. 14th (Wed). I will be running a 12 week group called The Artist’s Way. It is a personal growth group focused on recovering creativity and achieving personal goals. If you are interested, please email me at email@example.com for more info.
Alas, I had a conflict and couldn’t make it to the meeting (due to the Yale Club’s meeting…but don’t worry about any divided college loyalty–I was a grad student at Yale, in French and history, same as my undergraduate fields at Smith)…but I do want to be involved!
Here’s some seriously exciting news for those of you who have an interest in history and/or genealogy: The Social Science and History Department of the Free Library of Philadelphia will soon begin hosting a series of local history/genealogy programs! We plan to start in September and hope to have monthly events through May, with a break in January. More later…meanwhile, check us out at http://www.facebook.com/historyflp.
