Academic and career support
With an 8:1 student-to-faculty ratio and direct access to an array of peer mentors, career coaches, engaged alumni, and health and wellness counselors, you’ll have a team of people supporting you in every endeavor, every step of the way.
Residential life and dining
With award-winning dining and dorms and 1,000 acres of natural beauty, there’s a lot of ground to cover. And, like any home, our campus is both a comfortable place to return to and a launchpad for exploring the world around you.
Diversity and spiritual life
Here, we value cultural and intellectual diversity and share the responsibility for creating a welcoming, safe and inclusive environment. And we’re dedicated to it, too, funding diversity resources as well as ongoing campus dialogues, events, speaker series and so much more.
Arts and culture
Skidmore will push you to follow your sense of personal exploration. Part of that journey includes creative ventures and cultural adventures. Whether you study abroad, sign up for a service trip to South America, or participate in the dozens of multi-disciplinary arts and culture events at our premier on-campus venues, you’ll find daily ways to stretch and change your view of the world.
