Fifteen people attended the Applicants' Tea held on the cold wintry day of Jan 10, 2016, at the lovely home of Barbara Klaas '74. Current student McKenna Eckerline '18 fielded questions from prospective students and family members about college life while Barbara, Kristen Zoldan '06, and Mariquita Anderson '86 spoke of the importance of a women's college in their lives and about the all-important Smith network.
Thank you, Barbara, for hosting and thank you, McKenna, for teaching all of us what's current at Smith. We look forward to seeing who among the attendees will attend Smith in the Fall.
We do know of three students who will be entering Smith this Fall. They are Fall Early Decision candidates who were accepted in December:
- Simran Rayna Alter of Central High School in Saint Paul
- Anne Elizabeth Lepow of Edina High School, daughter of Smith Day Silent Auction co-chair Martha Phelps '87
- Corrina Marie Pascale also of Edina High School
Please join us in congratulating these young women! They'll be invited to the Accepted Students Brunch in April and the Summer Send-Off Party in August.
We have a total of 9 new students headed to Smith in the Fall of 2015.
