What Students Are Saying

Skidmore College is an amazing school.The teacher student ratio is perfect because it allows students to interact better with their professors. I feel comfortable at this school and it gives a lot of opportunities starting your second semester of freshmen year

Skidmore College is a liberal arts college in Saratoga Springs, New York. With an undergraduate student body of roughly 2,600, the school is quite small, but it is still large enough for a student to meet new people every day. Small class sizes make for intensive contact with professors and fellow students. It is not a big party school per se, but does have some good social life, and is located in a lovely town.
