Dear Smith Community:
 
Please join us on Thursday, Dec. 5 at 5 p.m. in Van Munching Hall's Pownall Grand Atrium for our annual holiday video shoot. We will be shooting some scenes inside and then will join on the front steps for our "Happy Holidays!" cheer. Wear festive attire, Maryland Red, or just come as you are. We expect that this will take less than 30 minutes.
