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.

Congratulations and welcome to Skidmore! We can't wait to begin working together. The FYE team will be your resource for all things preparation and support before and throughout your first year at Skidmore. Below are a number of important resources and helpful tools, which will be updated throughout the coming weeks. Please don't hesitate to reach out to us directly if you have any questions or concerns.
