Skidmore College Top Questions

What do people really wear to class?


There's such a mix of styles. Some students will wear sweatpants and sweatshirts to class, but I've had professors who request that students present themselves more respectfully. It varies greatly, however. I'm often surprised by how "adventurous" people get with skirt/short lengths and low-cut shirts. It's really based on personal choice. Saratoga Springs has dozens of fun boutiques if you're interested in shopping, and we're located 5 minutes from a mall, so usually students' wardrobes increase during their time here. There are certainly different constituencies on campus in terms of style: the "hipsters" and the "jocks" quickly come to mind, but I don't fit into either of those categories, nor do many other people at this campus, and that's very much accepted.
