IMPORTANT DATES 2014-2015:

On-Campus Experiential Learning Opportunities

The Pre-Health Club meets every other week.  Contact Brittany Dingler at bdingler@skidmore.edu 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: www.skidmore.edu/health_promotion/peer/index.php

Civic Engagement at Skidmore provides a wealth of opportunities to get involved in your community.  For more information, go to: www.skidmore.edu/community_service/students/va.php
