Skidmore News

Prospective Skidmore families are likely using their summer campus visit for a specific mission—to find out what life might be like as a Skidmore student and parent.


It's no surprise, however, that student life is a bit quiet this time of year. To round out the experience, we recommend some hot spots around town that ooze Skidmore “vibes.”


Campus Notes

Ron Seyb, associate professor of political science and associate dean of faculty, was featured in a live interview on WNYT-TV on June 26 (and subsequently in additional news segments June 27). Seyb provided political commentary and analysis about the 19th Congressional District’s Democratic Primary on the 11 p.m. newscast. Seyb noted challenger Antonio Delgado’s fundraising skills would be very important in his race against incumbent John Faso.

Diana Barnes, senior teaching professor of foreign languages and literatures, was quoted in a June 21 Times Union story titled “ICE returns to Saratoga, arrests 2.”


Please join the Offices of Advancement and Communications and Marketing for a summer open house to connect with colleagues from across campus over food, games and conversation.
