Going for the Gold

Issue: 

The PyeongChang Winter Olympics were extra special at Smith. These were the first Olympics held since the school and the Canadian Olympic Committee struck a partnership in November 2016 to provide scholarships for Game Plan eligible Olympians, Paralympians and national team athletes. Over eight years, some 1,200 athletes will be eligible to enroll in various Smith programs. Staff, faculty, alumni and students (including several COC athletes studying at Smith) celebrated the start of the Winter Games, at Goodes Hall and at SmithToronto, in February, adding their best wishes to Team Canada on a giant scroll for the athletes.
