    Wait I thought the "official" winter break was just over a week long? I read online that exams end December 22nd.

    This sounds like a fantastic opportunity and I'm going to encourage my d to do it! Yeah Smith!

    A bit off subject but....We belong to a CSA (community supported agriculture) co-op farm and my d has really enjoyed working on the farm and wants to continue volunteering at a CSA in the NoHo area. There is one right in Noho and I was wondering if anyone has had any experience doing this?

    @spiritinthenight, I think it's usually like 10 days? So not quite two weeks. Anyway, whatever it says on the website is what it is, and you can't be on campus during that time. But any time after that, it's all good.

    Upstatemom -- I don't know about volunteering at a CSA, but I do know that Smith and Hampshire both have pretty active community gardens if that's of interest to her.

    I think they do but as someone said they vary - this was taught by someone on the kitchen staff. The funny thing was she was used to cooking for large groups and there were only about 10 people in the class so they often had enough left overs for a second meal.

    Sophomore year, I spent J-term doing the Urban Education Initiative Fellowship offered by the education department. I basically spent a month living in New York City interning at an all-girls charter school in East Harlem. Smith arranged everything and covered transportation, lodging and food. It was an amazing and eye-opening experience - definitely something you might want to apply for if you're considering going into education!
