Building Connections: Establishing a Sense of Place
It's well known that what students do at the start of their first semester of college can set the foundation for their next four years. The First 6 Weeks program is designed to help you make a successful transition to Skidmore and lay a strong foundation for the rest of your college career. We hope that you will take advantage of the program’s opportunities to get to know your classmates, your communities, and yourself, and that in establishing your own sense of place, you will forge a bond of belonging in the diverse and wonderful communities inside and outside Skidmore.
Get involved, make new friends, connect with your professors, explore your intellectual
interests, expand your social connections—and enjoy becoming a member of the Skidmore
