Smithies are sometimes thought to be brainy and talkative in class, bordering on know-it-all-ness. Intimidatingly intellectual. Sexually frustrated because it's a women's college. Or, conversely, all gay because it's a women's college. Very feminist, study a lot. I think older generations think of Smithies as women from well-off families who wear pearls and sweater sets.
