How would you express Creative Thought Matters in under a minute? Check out this video for a cross section of Skidmore College in less than 60 seconds.  

Creative Thought Matters is more than just Skidmore’s motto: It embodies the spirit of a dynamic curriculum and an engaged community of individuals coming together, on a beautiful campus in an ideal college town, to prepare students and graduates for the careers of the future.  

With dozens of majors ranging from business and dance to Asian studies and neuroscience, Skidmore’s liberal arts curriculum offers unique learning experiences, ranging from collaborative research opportunities with world-class faculty to study-abroad programs in 45 countries.  

Located in Saratoga Springs, New York (one of “America’s best college towns” according to Travel & Leisure), Skidmore’s stunning campus is geared toward sustainability. It offers award-winning dining and student housing a short drive from the Adirondack Mountains and is only a three-hour drive from New York City, Boston and Montreal. 

The Skidmore community is diverse: Students come from more than 40 states and territories and 60 countries; half receive need-based financial aid. With more than 100 student clubs and 19 varsity sports, Skidmore caters to every interest.  

Skidmore’s curriculum, campus and community combine with a dedicated alumni network and Career Development Center to offer unique internship programs and prepare its graduates for fulfilling careers in business, science, education, medicine, public service and many other fields.
