Virtual Orientation Information for First Year and Transfer Students

Welcome to Skidmore! This year’s New Student Orientation consists of three modules, which will introduce you to a range of topics related to health and wellness, academics, and joining community. The first module — Health and Wellness — begins on August 7. The Academics and Joining Community modules will be posted to the website over the next two weeks, along with other information about in-person orientation schedules, special online events and more. Many members of the Skidmore community — faculty, staff and students —have come together to give you the best possible introduction to Skidmore College. We hope that as you review these modules, you will begin to grasp the significance of Skidmore’s commitment to community since this year, more than most, the success of the College will depend on everyone’s embrace of community welfare as a guiding principle.  

Please note: Given the situation this fall, we will be welcoming you to the Class of 2024, or the 2020 transfer cohort, and the larger Skidmore community at the same time. The three modules below contain information specific to incoming students, but there will be emails, community messages and tasks that will require action by all members or our community.
