New issue of Scope magazine is out now

May 30, 2020

The spring 2020 issue of Scope magazine, a biannual showcase of Skidmore College’s people and programs, is available now. 

The new issue explores how the Skidmore community pulled together in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, from quickly pivoting to support innovative online learning to finding creative new ways to stay connected and engaged. It also features the stories of three Skidmore alumni battling COVID-19 on the front lines as medical and research professionals.

As President Philip A. Glotzbach prepares to retire after leading the College with distinction for 17 years, he shares a message with the Skidmore community as well.

Augmented reality, an exciting new interactive feature, also makes its debut in this issue. Augmented reality allows readers to explore additional digital content by interacting with select images in the magazine with their cellphones or tablets.

As always, the magazine also highlights inspiring Skidmore programs, events and community connections, faculty accomplishments and alumni news.
