About

"I have never seen a community more willing to love and accept everyone," says Eleanor Wu ’26 about Smith. 

A leader in equity initiatives in high school, Eleanor values being in a supportive environment where broad exploration is easy. 

"Smith provides a unique opportunity to gain freedom in male-dominated fields such as science," says this sophomore who has won awards for her work in STEM and who is loving the open curriculum at Smith that allows her to discover new interests and create connections. She’s developing her own major to study her combined passions: language, literature, and how the mind works.

"We are the future, and the future depends on us," says Eleanor, looking ahead. "It’s a team effort that can only be achieved as a collective."

The Smith Fund is the ultimate team effort. 

Your gift of any amount will help support Eleanor and other Smithies as they realize their dreams.
