What is your overall opinion of this school?

The class sizes are small and the professors are very accessible. If you put in the effort to meet with a teacher, they are nearly always available to help. My courses have not been too stressful or too time consuming, but you do need to put in the time to do your work. Their is only one dining hall, but many options each day such as a pasta station, global options, vegan options, a soup/noodle bar, sandwich station, and "diner" food. Overall, the food is very good, and definitely much better than many other schools that I have visited. The social scene is not as lively as other schools, and most weekend life happens off campus, and is usually only on Saturdays. However, there are always many theater and musical productions to attend on campus. I am not super familiar with these, but have only heard great things about them. If you are an athlete, your teammates are you best friends. If you are in the arts scene, those are your best friends. If you are somewhere in the middle, it is tricky at times to navigate what to do on the weekends. Downtown is always a good option. The people here are kind, not overly competitive with each other, and do not act like they are above others. I appreciate that although there is money at this school, it is not in your face or presented in an intimidating way. I enjoy meeting new people here. The school is very small, so you see the same people everywhere you go. This is comforting, but can also be frustrating. The education is great, the food is good, and the people are nice. When touring, just know that Skidmore is definitely not the party school that you see in movies.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think Skidmore is an excellent school for a particular kind of student. If you are artistically inclined, enjoy a variety of academic pursuits, and do best in intimate settings and close relationships with instructors, then it is the right school for you. Saratoga Springs is a beautiful town and offers a lot to do during the week and the weekends. College life is typical at Skidmore, there are plenty of parties and extracurricular activities, but no pressure to be apart of them if you don't want too. There are many interesting people of all kinds of majors and academic pursuits, making conversation great. Unfortunately, diversity is not as great at our school as many students would like it to be, and the cost is difficult to wrestle with if you are dedicated to the school. There are many diversity-oriented groups on campus, however, and ways to contribute to tuition such as becoming a residential advisor. Financial aid also does their best to assist in any way that they can, including financing internships or providing the means for students to participate in job fairs and interviews. The weather is mostly cold, most of the year, so if you are not used to a lot of snow, this may not be the best place for you. The campus is beautiful and the snow only adds to that. Professors are kind and want the best for students, and because of our small class size building, special relationships with professors is easy. Those relationships have been the most important for me so far at Skidmore. The school is not for everyone, but for those that need Skidmore's kind of learning style to succeed, it makes for a very unique and life-changing academic experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Skidmore is a great school. The athletics are important, the academics are demanding, and the students are hard working. Everyone is very friendly and it is a small school, so it is very welcoming. The food is very good for a college. Skidmore is one of the top institutions in the country.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great place to study and advance your professional opportunity. Great opportunities for funding for conferences or if you want to pursue an unpaid summer internship. Not so great for social activity, unless you enjoy superficial relationships with friends.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Skidmore is a great university, but a very specific type of person attends Skidmore. There is a lot of passion on campus, but getting involved can be tough if you are passionate about many different things. Skidmore's accommodations are lacking but makes up for in academics.

Skidmore College is wonderful college to be attending. I am so happy to be here, there isn't much more for me to say. I have found a place to call home, and while I didn't immediately fall in love with it like my relatives said I should, I have now!
