Welcome to the spring semester

February 1, 2021

Dear Skidmore Students,

I write to welcome all of you back for the spring semester, and to welcome many of you back to campus. I’m eager for the time when we can all be back on campus, together. But at this moment, my wish is for all of us to have a great spring semester — even in these challenging circumstances. 

The preparations made to help ensure a safe semester at Skidmore have been extraordinary. Your faculty and staff have been working tirelessly this winter to help us achieve another in-person semester of instruction and experiences. I know that every one of you is sacrificing in order to make this possible as well. Believe me, I know this is a tough time and not the ideal college experience. But together we can do this, and I truly think we’ll look back on this time as an extraordinary accomplishment. For now, stay safe, take care of each other, and let’s have a fantastic spring semester together.

See you soon,
Marc C. Conner
President, Skidmore College
