Skidmore College
First-Year Experience

Welcome, Class of 2024! 

Congratulations to those accepted into Skidmore's Class of 2024! You and your family should be happy and proud.

If you have any questions about your first year at Skidmore, feel free to contact the Office of the First-Year Experience at 518-580-8111 or May the rest of your senior year in high school be rewarding, and once again, welcome to Skidmore!

FYI from FYE is a monthly newsletter produced over the summer months to help you get ready to join your classmates in August. 


Next Steps After Enrolling

  • Be on the lookout for a letter about setting up your Skidmore email. Important paperwork will be sent to you, using your Skidmore email address. Please note that this will primarily take place during the summer.
  • Important dates and deadlines will be updated and communicated to you as they become available.
  • You are invited to attend an Accepted Candidate Day event, held on campus on April 3, April 13, or April 17. Registration starts in late March, so keep an eye on your email. It's a great opportunity to meet new classmates and their families as well as the campus community.

Life at Skidmore

Keep up with a different Skidmore student each week by following the @LifeAtSkidmore instagram account! They’ll show you around campus, take you to class and give you an understanding of what attending Skidmore College is really like.

Check out the residence halls to see more about where you'll be living. There are additional photos, and packing tips, on the Living at Skidmore Pinterest board.
