Debating Diversity at Smith College...No Comment

Glenn Ricketts

No doubt they discuss other things at Smith College, but they sure seem to talk about “diversity” a lot, as indicated recently in The Sophian, the student newspaper.  Here are a couple of contrasting views on the ubiquitous and quotidian subject of diversity at Smith. Neither commenter thinks that things are quite as they should be. Student #1 says that diversity at Smith is too heavily skewed in the direction of this particular group; student #2 offers this view of the same subject.  As always, our readers are left to form their own conclusions.
