Dear Seniors and Guests of the Class of 2016:
I look forward to welcoming you, on behalf of the Skidmore College community, to the 105th Commencement Exercises on Saturday, May 21, 2016, at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center. We hope that when you read the accompanying schedule of activities for Commencement Weekend, you will be as full of anticipation as we are. My wife Marie and I especially look forward to your joining us for a reception late Friday afternoon at historic Scribner House, our residence and the former home of Lucy Skidmore Scribner. We are very proud to announce that at this year’s Commencement ceremony Skidmore will confer honorary degrees upon our deserving recipients, who will be announced at a later date.
Each of our distinguished guests will briefly address the graduating class. Linda Toohey, chair of the board of trustees; Miles Calzini, president of the Class of 2016; and I will also offer our congratulations. The entire Skidmore community joins me in expressing our great pride in the accomplishments of the Class of 2016. We look forward to celebrating with you in May.
Philip A. Glotzbach
