On-Campus Experiential Learning Opportunities

The Pre-Health Club meets every other week.  Contact Brittany Dingler at for details.

Skidmore EMS (SCEMS) will be holding information sessions for prospective applicants and anyone interested in their operations on the first Monday of every month (9/1, 10/6, 11/3, and 12/1) at 6:00 pm. Locations will be announced on their website and/or Facebook page.

The Peer Health Education program promotes healthy choices and lifestyles through educating and empowering the campus community on a variety of health related topics. Peer Health Educators serve as a resource, referral agent and role model for their peers. They are responsible for providing positive, interactive fun and non-judgmental programming and education aimed at providing their peers with information to make healthy, informed decisions regarding their health and wellbeing.   In order to work as a PHE at Skidmore, students need to first complete an in-depth training course (HF-215). Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and the course is offered every semester. More information can be found at:

Civic Engagement at Skidmore provides a wealth of opportunities to get involved in your community.  For more information, go to:
