Skidmore College
Commencement

Dear Seniors and Guests of the Class of 2019:

I look forward to welcoming you, on behalf of the Skidmore College community, to the College’s 108th Commencement Exercises on Saturday, May 18, 2019, 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 Marie 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 W. Scott McGraw P'12, Class of 2019 President Nigel Smith, and I will also offer our congratulations.

We look forward to celebrating this special milestone with the Class of 2019, their families, and all our guests in May.

Sincerely,

PAG Signature

Philip A. Glotzbach
President
