The Botanic Garden carries on the tradition of planting ivy for incoming first-year students. Every first-year student receives a certificate for a free ivy plant when she arrives on campus. Inside their orientation packets, new Smith students are greeted with a card reading: “An ivy plant awaits you at Lyman Conservatory with greetings from the Friends of the Botanic Garden of Smith College. Please bring this card with you. Come in the front entrance of the Lyman Plant House and follow the ivy signs.” #smithcollege

Is there a poem that means something special to you?

"When a person and a poem come together, something special happens," says Smith prof Sam Intrator. He’s written a book that pairs 90 poems and essays by teachers — including many Smithies — about poems that have inspired them.

So tell us: What poem matters to you? And why? What poems — or poets — did you discover at Smith?
