One can learn a great deal at Skidmore College because the classes are designed to enhance critical thinking and social awareness.

    Skidmore is a place that thrives on differences and those differences fuel us. It is a place where you have so many choices (whether it comes to what class to take, what to major in, what clubs to join, or where to chill) and it's up to you to make them. Skidmore is a place where you can discover yourself, while still getting the support you need if you reach out for it.

    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.
