Skidmore College

Class of 2024 Commencement

Dear Seniors and Guests of the Class of 2024:

I look forward to welcoming you and your families, on behalf of the Skidmore College community, to the College’s 113th Commencement Exercises on Saturday, May 18, 2024, at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center. We hope that when you read the schedule of activities for Commencement Weekend, you will be as full of anticipation as we are. My wife Barbara Reyes-Conner and I especially look forward to your joining us for a reception Friday afternoon at historic Scribner House, our residence and the former home of Lucy Skidmore Scribner.

As is our tradition, Skidmore will confer honorary degrees during the Commencement ceremony upon our deserving recipients, who will be announced at a later date. Each of our distinguished guests will briefly address the graduating class. Board of Trustees Chair Jon P. Achenbaum ‘77, Class of 2024 President Vicky Grijalva, and I will also offer our congratulations.

We look forward to celebrating this special milestone with the Class of 2024, their families, and all our guests in May.


Marc Conner
