The Setting

Workshop classes are held in the College's Dance Center. Participants who choose to live on Skidmore's campus will be housed in one of the College's residence halls. Dormitory rooms are spacious and feature free Internet access and cable television. Participants under age 18 will be supervised by the program's resident staff. We do our best to offer participants 18 and older single rooms. If space is limited, we will house participants in a double room with a roommate of the same gender and age. Registered participants may request specific roommates. Cooking is not allowed in the dormitories. Participants staying on campus must purchase the College's board (meal) plan for the duration of their stay. Participants may bring a small fridge for their room if they wish.

Our dining hall has an award-winning culinary staff that offers a broad array of freshly made items, including ample vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and other special dietary options. Participants will have access to the College's Scribner Library and recreational facilities, including swimming pool, weight and fitness rooms, lighted tennis courts, track, North Woods hiking trails, and the Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery.

Skidmore College is a highly selective liberal arts college known for outstanding academics, a rich co-curricular life, and challenging and caring faculty mentors. It is a place where creative thought matters, as evidenced by its more than 60 majors; its arts-infused, interdisciplinary focus; and the fact that half of the College's 2,400 undergraduates carry two majors or at least one minor with a major.
