May 16, 2017

Counting down the days before they deliver speeches at Skidmore’s Commencement on May 20, the senior class president sat down with the seniors' choice for faculty speaker and talked about their assignments. Madison Plummer says her biggest challenge is narrowing down and selecting from her four years of student experiences. Mark Youndt, a management and business professor, wants to avoid clichés and create a distinctive message. The pair also discuss what "Creative Thought Matters" means to them and what makes Skidmore students unique.
