Home Plate Program- student
Smith College invites you to participate in our Home Plate Program. The program is open to new, transfer and Ada students. The program matches you with a family in the community to help make your transition to Smith College welcoming and smooth. This can provide you with an opportunity to build a local support network. Making these connections can often be an important step toward student success.

Home Plate families are those that have a desire to host students and contribute to the life of the College in a personal way. Host families live in the area and may or may not be employed by Smith College. Students are assigned in groups of 2-3 to create a more comfortable atmosphere. They are interested in providing at least a home cooked meal once a semester. Beyond that it is up to the family and student if they would like to enjoy other activities. They may find themselves engaging in such things as:

Apple Picking
Pumpkin Carving
Cookie Making
Laundry Night

Many families and students simply enjoy hanging out and getting to know one another in a relaxed atmosphere. Students will have the opportunity to make local connections off campus. The Home Plate Program offers you just the break you may need from classes, resident life and campus food!

We are excited that you have chosen to be part of the Smith College Home Plate Program. Please sign and date this sheet making you aware that Smith College does not perform background checks on community hosts. This is a voluntary activity and the College is a matchmaker dependent only on allergies and animal preferences. Most families are known by members of the Smith College faculty and staff. It is the intent of the program to connect you with local residents to help enhance your Smith College experience.
