Office of Student Academic Services
One on One Academic Support
- Professional staff members in Student Academic Services (SAS) are available to Skidmore
students to help develop a wide range of academic practices. SAS serves all Skidmore
students interested in strengthening their academic performance and individualized
one-on-one support often focuses on improving time management skills, exploring test
taking strategies, strengthening note taking skills, and offering guidance regarding
specific assignments. SAS staff members are also available to students to provide
guidance regarding adjustment to college life, transitioning into Skidmore community,
and managing academic schedules. SAS staff members also assist students to address
questions about living with roommates, working with faculty members following absences
or missed deadlines, time management and navigating academic demands and personal
stressors. While SAS consultations and support will typically focus on students'
academic lives and academic goals, staff members in SAS can also help students connect
with other relevant campus resources including the Counseling Center, Spiritual Life,
and Health Services.
