It all began in 2001, when students in a Beatles seminar wanted to play a few songs with their friends. Now Beatlemore Skidmania is one of the biggest social and artistic phenomena at Skidmore. The two-day feel-good performance is so popular it fills the biggest concert hall on campus for three sold-out shows and is live-streamed for alumni and fans around the world.
Our Creative Thought Matters philosophy brings together all types of people. One thing they share: an ability to bring creative thought to life in their own passions and pursuits. Some bring it with them, some discover it while they’re here. Either way, a community that values creative ideas means you get to decide who you want to be—then go for it.
With 19 varsity teams competing regionally and nationally, the Skidmore Thoroughbreds athletic program offers some of the nation’s top sports opportunities. And with eight national and 83 conference championships, the whole campus takes pride in the success of our T’breds student-athletes.

"The best part about our club is we get to compete at a high level without the pressure that sometimes comes with playing varsity sports. It’s made playing hockey fun again for me."

"I’ve never been surrounded and humbled by such beauty, poise, strength, confidence and straight-up attitude in one place in my life! Our history, our clothing, our culture, our hair, our skin, are worthy of being loved and showcased."

"Potential employers are just blown away. Working with real clients is something most college students don’t get to do until a couple of years into a firm or in graduate school."
