The academic year at Skidmore is coming to a close with lots of good news, including the announcement that the College has shifted to a lower COVID-19 alert level and plans are underway for an in-person Commencement celebration for the Class of 2021 on May 22.

Skidmore implemented a variety of safety measures this year to keep the campus community safe, and the year was filled with fantastic achievements, special moments and exceptional creativity.

These recent images captured by Skidmore College Staff Photographer Sarah Condon-Meyers show just some of the camaraderie, impressive accomplishments and fun that capped this remarkable academic year.
