What Students Are Saying

3.98 Average Rating
Skidmore College is the perfect school if you're looking for a small liberal arts college. The classes are small and intimate, the professors brilliant and personable, and the courses are wide-ranging for those who are unsure of what they are interested in. The campus is beautiful and the city of Saratoga is safe and quaint.
Taylor from Waterboro, ME
Personally, my time at Skidmore were the best years I ever had. I was challenged academically, I met incredible people, and I worked with great professors. I could not have asked for a better college experience.
