Why did you decide to transfer to Skidmore?
I wanted a smaller classroom environment and a community that valued a liberal arts education (I transferred from a much larger university).

What does Skidmore offer you that your previous college did not?
More opportunities to connect with faculty and professors and more assistance when it comes to reaching future goals (i.e., CDC and in my case, HPAC).

What advice do you have for others considering transferring to Skidmore?
If you are looking for a small community with approachable professors Skidmore is definitely a great option. You have so many opportunities to grow at Skidmore and take on leadership roles and be active in your community

Are you glad you transferred?
I am glad I transferred to Skidmore. While I do miss some of the resources I had while at a bigger school, I think overall, I am far better equipped to achieve my goals attending Skidmore.

What's the best part of Skidmore so far?
The relationships I have made with the professors and connections within the community.

What are your future hopes/plans?
To attend graduate school and/or medical school and go into primary care.
