Join The Club: Your Membership Matters

The Smith College Club of Minnesota is one of the largest and most active clubs in the country. Our primary goal is to foster connections that continue the Smith experience throughout our lives. Local alums hold a wide range of events for networking and connecting – from casual small group activities to larger fundraising events.

We also have an active recruiting presence with area high schools, working to encourage Minnesota students to attend what we believe is one of the very best colleges in the country.
