News Breaks

New residential life projects
aim to bring more students into on-campus housing and enhance the campus’s sense of community. Architects are designing a new apartment complex in the woods near Scribner Village, there's talk of a student commons building, and Moore Hall is up for sale; future plans include total replacement of Scribner Village. Scope will cover these projects as they develop.

Attention, nursing majors! Professor Mary C. Lynn, author of Make No Small Plans, is researching the history of Skidmore’s nursing program and would like to hear from nursing majors willing to be interviewed about their experiences at the college.
