Orientation Information for First-Year, Transfer, and Exchange Students
Welcome to Skidmore! Whether you are an incoming first-year student staying on campus or heading to London, an international student, a transfer student, or an exchange student, we have planned an orientation to help you make the transition to Skidmore. We’ve tailored each orientation to fit the unique needs of each group. From sessions meant to help you get to know your classmates, explore the campus, and discuss your academic goals and pursuits, our purpose is to be sure you have the information you need to begin a successful career at Skidmore. For this reason, Orientation is required for all first-year, transfer, and exchange students.
Below you will find the dates and schedules for orientations happening this fall. The 2016 Orientation Guide will be available in May 2016, but the 2015 Family Orientation Guide can be used to learn more about New Student Orientation at Skidmore.
