Slowly moving into my new room! It’s a disaster area right now but by tomorrow it should be relatively neat I hope.
Heading back to Smith today! I’m helping with one of the orientation groups and I can’t wait to meet some new Smithies :)

There are a couple of places on campus that I have terrible service (the music building and the theatre building) and I have less than great service in the quad. But other than that, virgin mobile has served me quite well at Smith and in Northampton.
Thank you so much for the helpful information!
Anonymous said: hi, I was just wondering if you know if virgin mobile gets decent service on campus/around town? thanks!
I have no idea, I’m sorry! I think most providers have pretty decent service in Northampton, but there are some places where it’s a bit spotty.
I’m sorry I can’t be more help, but maybe someone with Virgin Mobile can let me know so I can give you an answer.
Thanks for the question, and please let me know if there is anything else I can help you out with!
Anonymous said: Any advice on what to bring with us for dorms? Like anything you forgot/didnt think of that would have been useful? Thank you!
Hi, Anon! Oh gosh, I brought so much stuff. It was ridiculous. I would suggest making a list of what you think you need, then googling a college dorm list and comparing the two. You’ll find most everything you need that way. I had all of the basic things, but here’s what I found most handy:
Things I don’t think are necessary:
Don’t stress too much about getting everything for your room all at once. You have access to Target, Walmart, and various grocery stores and malls by bus so you can always pick up things in the first couple of weeks. Plus after school starts things go on sale and you can order them online.
Best of luck, and don’t hesitate to ask if you have any more concerns about getting ready for your first year of college!
Just a reminder to all Smith first year students and prospective students that I’m available to answer any and all questions you may have about preparing for your first year of college or starting the college application process.
