Graduate and professional school expo scheduled Oct. 8

Oct. 3, 2013

Did you know that within five years of graduation at least half of Skidmore alumni have completed or are enrolled in graduate or professional school? And that close to 20 percent of last year’s graduating class is already there?

Current students will be considering their own postgraduate futures at Skidmore’s second annual Graduate and Professional School Expo Tuesday, Oct. 8. The gathering of representatives from about 50 schools (complete list here) is co-sponsored by the College’s Career Development Center and a number of academic departments.

Student registration is encouraged, but not required. The first 50 students to register through MyCDC Account will receive a Skidmore bag to hold the admissions materials they pick up. There will also be a raffle with giveaways from participating programs.
