Alumni Events

Retirees can keep in touch with alumni activities through the Alumni Affairs website.

Regional events are also available for alumni and friends of Skidmore.

Retired faculty who might wish to offer a program for an alumni club have a standing invitation to get involved. Please contact Mike Sposili, Executive Director of Alumni Affairs, to indicate your interest in such involvement, and when and where you might be available. Thanks for considering!
