Why did you apply ED to Skidmore?
What appealed to me about Skidmore was its beautiful campus and the fact that it was a top liberal arts college. Skidmore puts an emphasis on creating well-rounded individuals who, after four years, are ready to succeed in the "real world." I applied Early Decision because head baseball coach Ron Plourde expressed an interest in having me come to Skidmore, and after my visit I knew it was the right place for me. I am happy I applied Early Decision.
Best parts of your college experience?
Interacting with the diverse student body here. Skidmore students come from all over the world, and I love hearing about their cultures, especially how they differ from mine.
Most surprising moments?
How good the dining hall food has been!
