Power Your Potential.

How you engage in your first semester of college sets the foundation for your next four years. The Weeks of Welcome (WOW) program is designed to help you focus on your well-being in a thoughtful and extended way as you make a successful transition to Skidmore.  Through WOW, you have access to a broad array of opportunities that will help you to engage with, explore, and connect with Skidmore. Our hope is that you will power your potential by taking advantage of the program to get to know your classmates, your community and yourself more fully.
