Skidmore College Reviews
Review Skidmore College
A beautiful school with truly a place for everyone. About to finish my third year, I can say with certainty that my parents' money is paying off. I have taken at least three courses that have permanently shaped the way I view the world and continue to influence me every single day. Professors are incredible and very easy to access outside of class. There are also so many extracurricular activities to participate in, and if something you want is not there, it is very easy to start your own club! The campus dining services are incredible. Dhall is life and I would be so lost without Spa and Burgess. Dorms and on-campus apartments are spacious and have everything you could possibly need! I definitely made the right choice coming here. There is no Greek life, which is awesome in my opinion. Also, Saratoga Springs is quite possibly the most beautiful little city I have ever seen.
Skidmore has been one of the best decisions I've made in my young adult life. I've had access to a plethora of opportunities, be it a grant to present research at the American Psychology Society's annual convention, or the opportunity to study music composition under a successful opera composer. Professors and classes are engaging, and while there is a lot of material it has never been difficult to manage. If you truly enjoy learning and want an environment that stimulates your intellect, Skidmore is the place for you.
Skidmore's academic scene is very strong. All of the professors I have had are invested in the subjects they teach, and always make themselves available outside of class to meet with students. There are many interesting people and club activities on campus, and while there are definitely cliques, most people are friendly and spend time in multiple social groups. Food and housing choices are fairly limited for freshmen and some sophomores, but the options available are fairly good.
