The Smith Hill Annex Sign

Smith Hill Annex

Since 2012, we have been leasing a 1,000 square-foot space on Douglas Avenue with the simple purpose of fostering conversation between members of the College community and the Smith Hill community — resulting in increased mutual understanding and opportunities for collaboration. The Annex takes literally the challenge of public scholar Margaret Wheatley, who argues that, by “turning to one another” and engaging in sometimes difficult conversations, we can “begin to restore hope to the future.”

The Annex supports immediate, short-term initiatives like potlucks, speak-outs, exhibitions, and meetings. It also supports courses, workshops, and retreats of campus and community groups, and ongoing projects that serve campus and community. If you are interested in scheduling an event, please contact the Smith Hill Annex director, Sokeo Ros, M.Ed. ​

COVID-19 Updates

The novel coronavirus continues to be a concern for many, especially with the ever-shifting situation as new information becomes available. While COVID-19 has affected the community (locally and globally), the physical space for the Annex has reopened in the Fall of 2021 and our commitment to community has not changed. Please know the safety of the Smith Hill Community and the countless groups that bring life to the space is our number one concern.

There are masks and hand sanitizers for patrons that utilize the space. Thank you to everyone for your support and patience. Since the reopening, we are honored that you have continued to bring your amazing energy and vitality to the Annex and Smith Hill Community.
