With celebrations of community, rich academic and artistic experiences, and numerous opportunities to pursue their many unique passions, the Skidmore community has embarked on a spring semester filled with excitement and optimism about the future.  

Although important measures to help contain the spread of COVID-19 measures remain in effect, Skidmore community members have found ways to enjoy the many unique experiences that define Skidmore, from traditions like the Big Green Scream to the creative courses that lie at the heart of Skidmore’s curriculum. 

Skidmore Staff Photographer Sarah Condon-Meyers recently captured these campus scenes showing a vibrant campus community as it continues to put Creative Thought Matter into action.
