Tea and “Smith Through The Decades” Alumnae Panel at Waverly Heights

The Smith College Club of Philadelphia invites you to afternoon tea at the Waverly Heights retirement community in Gladwyne, on Sunday, February 15th. Alumnae from a wide range of class years will be sharing stories about Smith during their time there. What was it like to be a Smith student during World War II? How did day-to-day life at Smith change in the 70’s as the Women’s Movement grew? What’s on the minds of today’s Smithies? Alumnae from the days of FDR through the Obama era will share and compare personal memories of their college years during nearly seven decades of tumultuous change. Enjoy delicious refreshments and great company as we explore our shared history!

Last year, an alum let us all in the song “You Can’t Get a Man with Your Brain.” A song which seemed unintuitive to most! An article in Tablet recently highlighted the history behind this song. You can expect much more where this came from at tea! Smithies are as diverse as they come. We all know tea is the place where the stories come out to shine. You won’t want to miss this special annual event and a chance to learn more about Smith’s heritage in an unorthodox, honest, and incredibly eye-opening way. Learn from your elders, share your truths, challenge the past, learn about Smith from the inside out, and bring your own story.

We are currently looking for alums from the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, 2000s, and 2010s to be a part of the panel discussion. Email the club at phillysmithclub@gmail.com if you’re interested!
