More than 500 Smith alums live in Oregon, and we represent many ages, professions, and interests. Every year, we celebrate Mountain Day with a walk in the woods, a garden, or any place outside where we can appreciate the glorious fall weather. We gather for educational and social events at least a couple of times each year, sometimes to hear from a faculty speaker or notable Oregon Smith alumna.
Thanks to our Recruiting Co-Chairs and others who help them with interviews, we also send between 11 and 15 Oregon students to Smith each year. Our annual meeting in early June traditionally features a strawberry shortcake feast!
Dues range on a sliding scale from $10 to $50, and almost 100% of dues go to our scholarship fund that goes to an Oregonian Smithie every year. We aim to have our events free or very close to it to make it easier for local alums to join us and to keep club costs down so more money goes to our scholarship fund.
