Student stories

It's something we hear often: Students come to Skidmore to "do both." They want to explore multiple passions – science and music, performance and politics. They seek the freedom, encouragement, and support to explore, mix, match, add, and create. We believe we offer all of this and more ... but we'll let them show and tell you themselves.
