Do you remember the summer before your first year at Skidmore, asking things like, What should I bring with me? and How much snow does Saratoga really get? Alumni, current students, and parents gathered in several locations this summer to answer questions and welcome members of the Class of 2006 and their parents to the Skidmore family. A huge thank-you to those who hosted gatherings: Jonathan Seeger 03, Michael Seeger 06, and parents Mark and Fran Seeger (Bethesda, MD); Michele Segre 90 (Wyndmoor, PA); Susan Schwartz 68 (Chicago, IL); Jonathan Leavitt 06 and parents Stephen and Maribelle Leavitt (San Francisco, CA); and Stephanie Whitehorn 03 and parents Carol and Joseph Whitehorn (Waban, MA).
