News Breaks

Everybody's talking about....
Kara Walker's art exhibit and Malloy Lecture at the Tang Museum. Exploring violence, racism, and sexual exploitation, Walker's "lewd and lovely" silhouetted images inspire deep, and difficult, reflections on human power struggles, from slavery to today. The show is up until June.

Hard times
The economic recession is hitting colleges hard. Watch the next Scope for the inside scoop on Skidmore's revenues, expenditures, and worries over tuition hikes, hiring freezes, student aid, and more.

Presidential prospects
Many on campus have high hopes for the presidential search, being led by trustee John Howley '80. With luck, Skidmore could have a new president right after current prez Jamienne S. Studley steps down this summer. Nominations and suggestions can be submitted online.
