Get ready for Smith in Europe 2018! 

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Brussels on 11-14 October.

We’re excited to plan a great programme and make this weekend enjoyable and affordable for everyone. We will make sure there will be lots of moments to get to know other Smithies - over chocolate or beer, in front of one of the Old Masters or the EU Institutions.  

There are many options for accommodation in beautiful Brussels. We will have our HQ near downtown at the NH Hotel on the beautiful Grand Sablon, which is walking distance from the Grand Place, the Fine Arts & Magritte museums, and shopping areas such as Louise.

You can book a room in the hotel or nearby via AirbnbBooking.com, or any other platform of your choice. There's also a youth hostel a short walk just down the hill. 

As we’re the capital of Europe, Brussels is easy to reach by planetrain (Eurostar, Thalys, ICE), ferry, car, etc.

You will be able to find more information soon on our website. And if you have any questions now, feel free to email smithineurope2018@gmail.com.

A bientôt à Bruxelles! Tot binnenkort in Brussel!

Your organizing team,

Annie, Erica, Lise, Marnie, Martha, Michele, Rosie & Tanja

What is Smith in Europe?

Smith in Europe is an informal network of Smith College graduates who live in Europe,  

Every other year, we gather for our Reunion to strengthen our ties and welcome new friends. 

The Smith in Europe Reunion is organised by local volunteers - this year by the Smith College Club of Belgium. Smith provides some administrative support and members of the College's leadership attend Reunion, sharing news of the College and learning about ways Europeans support its mission, 

Smith in Europe 2018 is not part of the Smith Travel programme. Please understand that, because space is limited, priority is given to Smithies resident in Europe.
