My name is Zoe Pagliaro and I, along with Michaela Bonforte, spent the summer stewarding Skidmore’s North Woods. From trail maintenance to bug hotels, here’s a look at what it was like to have a job where you’re required to explore nature and share it with others!


The Saratoga Springs and Skidmore communities came together on July 24 at Skidmore’s 39th annual Polo by Twilight event. Over 500 supporters gathered at the Saratoga Polo Fields to raise a record-breaking $320,000 to benefit the Palamountain Scholarship Fund.

Skidmore Spotlight

Raymond Apholz works as a campus safety and mounted security officer in the Department of Campus Safety.


Apholz said the two things he enjoys most about working at Skidmore are the great people and the chance to ride his horse, Myles. Myles is a male, fifteen-year-old Palomino. Before Myles, he spent many years patrolling campus with Lady, who is now 34 years old and retired.
