The student body is very friendly; however, the dorms are terrible (spec. South Quad), and there are only two types of people: the artsy, VERY quirky type, and the arrogant jocks who clearly think they're above everyone else. The professors I've had have been great, but many students are not engaged and don't care to participate, which has been really disappointing. If you want night life and are under 21, you NEED a fake. Otherwise, when everyone goes "downtown" to the clubs you're heading back to Spa or your room. The Student Government is impossible to work with if you want to start a new club, and it is nearly impossible if you want to obtain a room change if you're having roommate issues. I can see how Skidmore could work for other kids looking for a less-selective, less-demanding liberal arts school, but I've just found it to be a suffocatingly small school in the middle of nowhere, inhabited by potheads and jocks who think they're the gods of campus.
