Our diverse, empowering and supportive community
“Skidmore feels like family,” says a Niche.com review. “These people are rooting for you,” says another. With a small student-to-faculty ratio and more than 2,500 students, including 12% international, 15% first-generation and 26% domestic students of color, you’ll join a community that’s eager to guide and support you.
Degrees that really mean something
Skidmore offers 44 B.A. and B.S. degrees, and the liberal arts make it easy to connect different majors, minors and passions. Here, you’re empowered to follow your own path and gain the knowledge you need to pursue a fulfilling life in a continually changing world.
Creative Thought Matters
We're committed to creative thinking. Rooted in our founding mission to “educate the mind and hand,” Creative Thought Matters is an invitation to take informed risks, merge disparate paths, embolden your sense of self and feel inspired and equipped to find your purpose.
Career preparation and experiential learning
Nearly 75% of students complete one internship or professional experience before graduating, and hundreds more are involved in professional-level research before graduation. No matter your goal, there’s no shortage of connections or opportunities to get you there.
Our beautiful campus and a creative small city
Let’s just say, there’s a reason 90% of Skidmore students choose to live on campus — our picturesque landscape is captivating, our dining hall is award-winning, our facilities are fueled by green energy, and Travel & Leisure calls Saratoga one of “America’s best college towns.”
Our unwavering commitment to a meaningful experience
From your first day, you'll notice it: This is a place that brings ideas, and people, together. At the intersections of art and science, students and faculty, research and athletics, Stompin’ Soles club and pre-health club, you'll find an experience like no other.
