Meet the Class of 2018

May 16, 2018

Over the past four years, the members of the Class of 2018 have made their mark on Skidmore's history and are sure to continue their impact after they cross the stage and become the newest members of our alumni community.

As our grads transition from students to alumni, we're looking at what makes this group stand out.

With four years on campus, academic accomplishments abound for this class. From hundreds of awards and appointments to national honor societies and numerous presentations at national conferences, they've made their mark across all disciplines. 

Nowhere did a mix of creativity and excellence manifest itself better than at Academic Festival, a showcase of student talent. Top students shared senior theses and projects with the Skidmore community as the culmination of their academic careers. This year's festival featured more than 270 students in solo and team presentations of student work ranging across all sciences, humanities and art.

It was a banner year for Skidmore athletics, due in no small part to the contributions of Thoroughbred seniors.

While supported by the hard work of many, two standout individuals topped off remarkable seasons and college careers with 2018 Senior Athlete Awards: Austin Okoye, men's soccer midfielder, and Kelly Donnelly, women's basketball guard.

Okoye finished his final season leading the Liberty League with 22 points, 10 goals and 77 shots, making him the first Thoroughbred to tally double-digit goals in a season since 2013.

Donnelly capped of her Skidmore career with a Liberty League championship win, a run to the NCAA tournament, a third All-American title and, last but not least, by breaking the school's all-time career scoring record with 1,832 points.

Campus Life

Since they arrived in 2014, members of the Class of 2018 have made this campus their own. Fueled by the idea that Creative Thought Matters, they had the freedom to decide who they wanted to be and the guts to go for it.

A community of individuals, their impact was exponential, volunteering hundreds of hours to local and national causes and traveling to dozens of international cities and countries to widen their perspectives.

They've led more than 120 clubs and participated in hundreds of events from film screenings and fashion shows, to peer performances and faculty lectures.

In this bittersweet time of year, the culture they created on campus and the experiences they shared may be what they will miss the most.
