On 1,000 acres of Saratoga Springs, New York, is Skidmore College, a liberal arts institution that offers students 43 majors and more than 100 study abroad programs. Considered a "Hidden Ivy," Skidmore routinely makes national lists, including as one of "American's Most Entrepeneurial Colleges" and as a "Best Value" school. SC's motto, "Creative Thought Matters," dates back to the founder of the school but can be seen on campus today in everyday classes and in the Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery, as well as the Arthur Zankel Music Center. Skidmore hosts the National College Comedy Festival every year and student comedy troupes and improv groups come from all across the region to perform.
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.

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.
