Skidmore College
First-Year Experience

Welcome to Skidmore!

The Office of the First-Year Experience provides information and support to new students as they prepare for their arrival at the college—whether they are spending their first semester in Saratoga Springs or at our London FYE program. And of course, we help students as they navigate through their first year of college.
