First-Year Experience
Congratulations to those of you who have been accepted into Skidmore's Class of 2018! And welcome to our community--both students and families.

We highly recommend that you attend one of our three Accepted Candidates Days in April, whether you've decided to come to Skidmore or are still thinking it through. You can meet other members of the Class of 2018, interact with faculty, coaches, and staff, and sample what Skidmore has to offer in the sciences, arts, sports, clubs, and more. 

Below, we've assembled information you may find helpful as you move toward matriculation in September.

Let your friends know and meet more online:
