Hai Timiai

Hai Timiai is the William Smith Senior Honor Society. The society was founded in 1953, and its name is the Greek for “Honored Women.” They are a small group chosen by their members and the Deans to represent the many outstanding young women studying at William Smith. Entering the society is not a prize for winning a contest. It is not an end, but a beginning. Hai Timiai members are deserving of this honor due to their past commitment to the welfare of William Smith College and the larger community, through tradition and innovation. Membership signifies ongoing individual and group contributions.
