    Situated in a lovely small town, Saratoga Springs, Skidmore is surrounded by a lovely area. The shops downtown - while expensive - are great, and restaurants are found in abundance. Furthermore, the location within the state of New York is great: Skidmore is at the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains, so outdoor adventures are waiting not too far from the school. It is about a 3-4 hour drive to Montreal, Boston, and New York City. Skidmore itself has a plethora of clubs and activities to be involved in, especially the acapella and improv groups are popular.

    There is 3000 + events a year at Skidmore. There is always lots to do and we have many clubs. We put on alot of shows weather its the dancing, singing, or comedy clubs on campus, or Guest that we bring into campus or our theater and Dance department. We also have Campus wide parties and some people do get togethers at their on campus apartments also. We also have 100 + clubs and you petition to start your own if theres something we dont have that you would like to start up. Last year a student started a Red Cross club.

    Skidmore has so much going on. One can join clubs, or watch clubs perform, go to concerts or dances, spend time in Saratoga Springs, attend an open mic, go to an art show, play humans vs. zombies, or just meet new people. There's something for everyone.

    There are tons of things to do on campus at all times. There are dances, dance performances, A capella shows, comedy shows, and a number of different speakers who come to campus. Skidmore definitely is not a party school, but there are number of weekend parties both on and off campus. Not to mention, there are number of great bars/boutiques/restaurants off Broadway as well.

    There are many fun things to do at this college, but I believe the most fun thing to do there would be to participate in any of the various sports on campus.

    There are always tons of things going on on campus like movies, club activities, dances, lectures, etc. But if none of that interests you there are also many restaurants downtown, a mall, and a movie theater all 10 minutes away from campus.

    Be advised: Many students are bored here with the social scene and many do transfer because of it. Just make sure to explore your first year and do get involved in the school activities.
