5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Though Skidmore has a Title IX action against it currently, I feel the campus is working hard to improve support systems and preventing future assault. I am a woman and I feel very safe on campus (though I do not party, so I am not around alcohol or out late at night).

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Class sizes are small so professors get to know you and help you.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The Career Center can be helpful, though last time I went it was not as helpful. It is very easy to get internships in your field however.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I have not had issues with my room, though I know people who have, but Res Life has always sorted that out.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: For Skidmore students, the fact that we don't have Greek life is a big part of choosing Skidmore.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I can do everything I want to pursue at my school.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Class sizes are small, good way to get to know people. Professors are usually helpful and nice.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Haven't really explored that yet.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: If you have a good RA like I did, you get a really nice community feel on the floor and a chance to bond with everyone freshmen year.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: The school is very divided between athletes and everyone else. No one really attends games and I heard our teams never win except for men's basketball

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Professors are nice and friendly. Students are mostly friendly, just had some bad friend experiences. I don't really like all the all college requirements, it's a pain to fulfil.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There is a health center and campus safety

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I was lucky enough to get my interested classes. Professors are nice and are experts in their fields.

3 College Freshman

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Although I live in a triple room, but it is big enough for me. And the residential faculty will clean the common area and bathroom every day, so it is clean.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I am not a sports person, so I am not familiar with the athletical things. The part I like is the great gym we have.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Personally, I really like arts course. Skidmore College offers a big amount of arts classes but it is not a pure art school. Therefore, I have opportunity to explore other fields and meanwhile develop my art interest.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Always felt safe on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Career Center always ready to help.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Not the type of school for quiet people.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors are good and each one knows your name. They don't go into detail as much as I'd like because there is limited time. Its hard to get the courses you want and some classes don't match their descriptions. Also some classes require a lot of time but don't give the appropriate amount of credits. The professors are available for office hours though.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Everyone gets forced triples. It sucks but the rooms are overall okay dorms. The residential life office is not helpful and the people that work there are very rude. It is very hard to get a room change.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: I play sports at Skidmore and find the environment very strange. There is only one type of person who plays sports at Skidmore and they are all basic and republican. The sports facilities suck because they are very small and none of the teams coordinate what times they are using the gym so it gets very busy all at once.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Everyone at the school is friendly but the work can be overbearing that you do not have time to bond with those people. The academics are time consuming but can be interesting. The school is very pretty during the fall and everyone loves to sit outside. Although you can meet new people, it does feel like high school and everyone knows everyone else's business. The school comes off as liberal but it is filled with republicans.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
