A sit-in from noon to midnight at the Northampton, Massachusetts, campus reportedly drew 300 to 500 students and Black Lives Matter activists who chanted and shared their own experiences with racism and discrimination. Similar to rules enforced at the University of Missouri and other campuses nationwide, media members were not allowed to cover the Smith College sit-in unless they openly supported the movement, MassLive reported.

    NORTHAMPTON - After several years of de-emphasizing SAT scores, Smith College has decided to drop them as a requirement for admission. Beginning in the fall of 2009, Smith will make the submission of SAT results optional in the application process, joining colleges such as Mount Holyoke, Hampshire, Bowdoin and Bates in looking at other aspects of prospective students. The policy change, which was recently approved by Smith President Carol T. Christ, is part of an effort to take a "holistic" approach to assessing applicants, according to Audrey Y. Smith, the college's dean of enrollment. "What we're assessing is their readiness...

    "We're here, we're queer, get used to it!" Dozens of lesbian activists at Smith College climbed in through windows and stormed the podium in a riot scene shortly after Ryan Sorba began a speech on his upcoming book, The Born Gay Hoax. The melee forced an end to the speech before a packed hall in the library on the Northhampton campus. Uniformed police officers and a plainclothes security guard were in the room but mostly just stood and watched. Rather than take action against the rioters, the officers and a university official walked to the podium and ordered Sorba to...

    Rioting lesbians have stormed a speech by "Born Gay Hoax" author Ryan Sorba on the campus of Smith College in Massachusetts, shutting down his address, according to two major pro-family organizations, Americans for Truth and Mass Resistance. "Beware lesbians with frying pans (if you care about free speech)," AFT said in his announcement. "Lesbian activists at Smith College just couldn't stand by and let a young critic explain his views about the supposed innateness of homosexuality – so they stormed Ryan Sorba's speech on the 'Born Gay Hoax' and forced him to end it prematurely." "Thus they decided for everyone...

    NORTHAMPTON - Two women, one a Smith College student, pleaded innocent to rape and assault charges yesterday in connection with a sexual encounter that a prosecutor said started out consensual and turned into a rape involving handcuffs and knives. Northampton District Court Judge W. Michael Goggins set bail at $2,500 cash or $25,000 surety for Rachel Ann Klobertanz, 22, and Augusta Claire Kendall, 22, at their arraignments yesterday morning.

Loehn said the 20-year-old victim,...

    The following text is posted on another website as an editorial piece in the newspaper of Smith (Very Dem) College"To the independent mind: Friday, October 8, 2004, was the night of the second presidential debate, focusing on both foreign and domestic policy. Whether you agree with the Bush administration's policies or not, think Bush is an idiot or think that he didn't win the election in 2000, the President dominated the second debate. The President connected; the Senator scolded. Oh, and did I mention that George Bush won? The President was articulate and factually supported his arguments, but most of...

    Economics professor Jim Miller will be running for Massachusetts Senate this fall. Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney recruited Miller, the only Republican candidate in his district, to run in the election. "People called me a terrorist," said Miller about his attempts to collect signatures in Amherst. As part of the political minority in Massachusetts, Miller had to go to great lengths to find the 300 signatures necessary to enter as a candidate. "The best place to go was the Deerfield Dump," said Miller. "People thought 'This guy must be dedicated to be standing out here on a Saturday.'" Miller would like...

    Smith College: Radical Feminist U By Lisa Makson | April 20, 2004 During the lead-up to Operation Iraq Freedom, things became so bad at Smith College -- the historic all-female university -- that students had American flags ripped off their dormitory doors and shredded. Government Professor Tandeka Nkiwane told a member of ROTC soldiers “are horrible, inhuman barbarians.” Others worried that "disloyalty" would be punished. It was not always this way. In typical American fashion, the seeds for Smith College grew out of tragedy. Sophia Smith inherited her family’s fortune in 1861 and since she never married, she had...

    An Antiwar Activist Known for Being Committed Yet ErraticBy JAMES DAO Published: March 12, 2004 TAKOMA PARK, Md., March 11 — Susan P. Lindauer wore her liberal politics on her sleeve, as well as on her aging Mazda, where bumper stickers proclaimed her unabashed opposition to the Iraq conflict. "Peace in Iraq through change at home," one said. "War is not the answer," another said. To her neighbors — who described her as gentle if somewhat lonely — Ms. Lindauer was typical of this left-leaning enclave on the northern doorstep of Washington, a place fondly known by its residents as...
  • Liberal Smith College Dumps Only Conservative Prof.

    James D. Miller, assistant professor of economics, believes that the decision earlier this year to deny him tenure was based at least in part on his political beliefs. Other economics professors argue that the department remains committed to academic freedom. Recently students have circulated a petition in support of Miller. Miller, who has taught economics at Smith for seven years, was reappointed in April 2000. Because his reappointment letter was "purely positive," Miller said he was shocked by the decision earlier this semester not to grant him tenure. By a vote of five to three with one abstention, members of...

    It may come as a surprise to you, but not only are there many silent conservative students at Smith, there is a very large number of silent conservative alumni as well While the hostile attitude toward conservatives in the student body will not cost the school anything for a generation or more, its attitudes have large costs with respect to alumni right now.

    Monday, April 28, 2003 -- NORTHAMPTON - Smith College students earlier this month made a decision some might find mystifying: Although Smith is a women's college, the students voted to change the language of their student constitution so that the pronouns "she" and "her" would be replaced with gender-neutral terms. The vote applies only to student government documents, and not to official college publications, so none of the college's brochures will excise the female pronouns. The student government vote is an indication of a deeper issue facing Smith College, and other same-sex institutions, which is that a growing number of...
