4 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Lots of selection + unlimited meal plan for sophomores & freshman.

2 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Not a great selection. Most students are, although very bright & kind, not very attractive.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Lots of wealthy white kids, BUT, overall very accepting

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Skidmore meets 100% of need met. That being said, they do not offer Merit scholarships.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Not a lot of cheap places to grab a bite. No affordable fast food or late-night diners that are easily accessible by bus. There are a few O.K. pizza & asian places, for late-night escapades, but that's it. On the pricier end of things, there are a number of fancy restaurants scattered about the town.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Skidmore's campus housing is somewhat split- the older dorms are somewhat run-down & outdated. However, the newer dorms (North quad & on-campus apartments) are really great. Very, very large & include perks like A/C + heating control.

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There is no Greek Life at Skidmore.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Lots of on-campus apartments, as well as off-campus sport houses. Cheap bars and clubs downtown.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: We have a great gym, which is huge for the number of students at Skidmore. That being said- sporting events are not widely advertised and not very popular for students to attend.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The Skidmore campus & surrounding community is a very safe, comforting place to be.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: If you get caught for drinking, their really strict

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Ethnic diversity is average, but majority of the students are very wealthy

3 College Sophomore

3 College Sophomore

Academics: There isn't much variety in majors, but there is a variety in classes. Class sizes however are very small

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: There is no school spirit.

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There is no Greek life

After four years, Skidmore becomes more than just a school—it's a community, a home, a place of growth and development. Skidmore is a place where you'll make mistakes and where you'll learn from those mistakes and make better decisions than you could ever imagine. Skidmore is your friends, your relationships, your breakups. Skidmore is your family. Skidmore is your accomplishments and your pride.

Would students choose Skidmore again if given the chance? Certainly. Students look back at who they were before they got to Skidmore, and discover they learned many new things, from both textbooks and students and faculty. Despite the snowy winters, the weather in Saratoga Springs is conducive for hitting the books. You'll produce work of high quality that you could never imagine doing when you first arrived to campus as a first-year student. Plus, students form close relationships, often going to their adviser's house for holidays and dinners. The Saratoga Springs area is also conducive for students pulling together and making the most out of their Skidmore experience, as there's plenty to do and explore.
