From the Freirich Business Plan Competition to in-class guest appearances, from
internships and jobs to events mounted by the Career Development Center, Op-
portunity Programs, Alumni Relations, and other offices, alumni in every field
and era are role-modeling, mentoring, and networking with current students.
And when those graduates light a path for students, the students often make
great strides—footsteps that benefit their own lives and that they can illuminate
for the next generation. A few examples of alumni extending a hand to students:
“If you pursue great footsteps, you leave great footprints,”
said one Ghanaian thinker.
Something like that is clearly at work in Skidmore’s alumni and student community.
