1. Every year, following commencement, new Smith graduates march up to the courtyard of King and Scales houses and form concentric circles, passing diplomas around in an annual ritual called the Diploma Circle. It’s a necessary and uniquely Smith invention because graduates process with their houses during commencement and cross the stage in 35 different groups instead of alphabetically as a class, so that when they cross the stage, they likely receive the diploma of a classmate. Since 1911, the Diploma Circle, typically a 15-minute process, is where each graduate receives her own diploma. Music courtesy of mobygratis.

    Smith College Rec Council and Verizon Wireless present Lights!

    Lights looks up bashfully at the end of her first pieces, then relaxes a bit and invites us to clap a long with her. “You guys are awesome,” she says breathlessly. “Ice,” one of her singles and first on the EP, carries itself with a superb beat and starts out impeccably clean, bouncy, and complexly quick, not unlike the artist herself. Though we’re all sitting, some get up to dance in the aisles—Lights’ music is infectious, delightful, and demands movement.
