Travel & Leisure calls it one of “America's best college towns.” We just call it home. In just a short walk from campus, students can be at the heart of a beautiful, bustling city bursting with coffeehouses, restaurants, galleries, parks, boutiques and nightlife. Famed for its many festivals and charming traditions, Saratoga Springs is an ideal location for creative thought to thrive. Plus it's only a short drive to the nearby Adirondacks, Berkshires, and Green Mountains and just three hours from New York City, Boston and Montreal.
Skidmore's Community Garden was inspired by our own students with support from the Sustainability Office. Located in the heart of campus, it supplies more than 1,000 pounds of organic food to our dining hall and the Saratoga Farmers' Market. It also provides a venue for students interested in environmental issues, social justice and economic development to gain hands-on experience in the local food movement.
