To Skidmore's Class of 2018,
Welcome to the Skidmore First Year Experience. This website is a way of fostering discussion about the summer reading selection within our community—even before you arrive on campus in August. The site will be updated frequently, so keep checking back in. And, as you read, formulate your own thoughts about the book; discuss them with your families and friends, as we are doing ourselves; and, then, bring your thoughts to campus when you move to Saratoga to begin your college career.
During the academic year Skidmore will host a series of discussions, readings, lectures,
and performances connected to some of the issues addressed by the reading(s). We invite
you to attend and continue the exploration of our chosen reading(s).
The 2014 Summer Reading is What Money Can't Buy by Michael Sandel (which was enclosed in your FYE packet). We will launch the What Money Can't Buy website in the next few weeks, so please check back!
