More than 100 members of the Skidmore community — from lacrosse teammates to President Marc Conner — rolled up their sleeves and gave blood during a Red Cross Blood drive in memory of Lilly Kishore '21 on Friday, Sept. 24. Following the blood drive, friends, fellow student-athletes, faculty, staff, and College leaders gathered to remember Lilly, who died June 23, at a dedication in her honor.

Campus Master Planning
The College recently held virtual meetings with local community leaders and North Broadway area neighbors to share information regarding Skidmore’s Campus Master Planning project and to collect opinions, experiences, and observations about how the campus functions today and how it can be improved as a part of ongoing efforts to align the physical campus with the College’s mission and vision for the future.
Parking on campus
Campus Safety is now issuing fines for parking violations. Students, faculty, and staff are reminded that parking is only permitted in authorized parking spots (identified by white or yellow lines on either side of the parking space). Parking is not permitted over pavement markings such as those with hazard markings (parallel diagonal lines), at the end of a row of cars where there are no parking lines on both sides of your car, on the grass, on sidewalks or crosswalks, in the roadway, or in any no-parking zones. Parking in any of these areas may result in your car being ticketed. Receiving three tickets qualifies your car to be “booted.” If you cannot find an authorized parking space in your preferred parking lot, you will need to move to another lot. Please check the campus map to identify alternative lots that meet your needs.
