Periclean Honors Forum
Skidmore College is a small, highly selective liberal arts college
that fosters academic inquiry and creative thought and expression.
Honors Forum promotes these goals. Honors Forum is an
academic program that offers rigorous courses and extracurricular
events to its members and the larger Skidmore community. Honors
Forum regularly hosts field trips, campus dialogues, and lectures to
foster the life of the mind and build a community of like-minded
scholars and leaders. Our goal is to encourage students to take
ownership of their academic and co-curricular education and to
reflect meaningfully on their personal and professional goals. The
Honors Forum invites all first- and second-year students with a 3.5
GPA to apply to the Forum.
Honors Forum introduces extraordinary rigor into academic
programs as students consider complex questions and examine
sophisticated materials. Honors Forum students pursue the life of
the mind both in the classroom to outside of it. The Forum
promotes and supports student-organized co-curricular activities
(e.g. lectures and panel discussions) and leadership and civic
engagement opportunities where students guide fellow peers,
faculty, and staff within the Skidmore community and beyond.
