Skidmore College Outdoor Orientation Program (SCOOP) IF THE PROGRAM IS FULL AND YOU REALLY WANT TO PARTICIPATE PLEASE EMAIL ME at mtoia@skidmore.edu

SCOOP is an optional four-day program that precedes the mandatory New Student Orientation, and is designed to offer new students the opportunity to meet fellow first-year classmates and upper class student advisors while spending quality time in the majestic Adirondack Mountains.  The program offers a wonderful beginning to the first-year student experience at Skidmore College and offers a unique and exciting dimension to your first days as a Skidmore student an experience which we believe will be especially enjoyable and rewarding.
