About Skidmore College


Creative Thought Matters

"Creative Thought Matters" is not just a slogan at Skidmore College – it's something we believe in wholeheartedly. It is a way of life. It is a brand promise to students that no matter what they choose to study they will be active participants in an academic and extracurricular environment that is richly influenced by literature, arts, culture and ideas. What they learn will be brought to life by Skidmore's historic and highly prized "hand and mind" tradition that values and rewards real-world actions and outcomes.
