College Tour '10: Skidmore College

By Valerie Strauss

Skidmore College
From a parent

Not everybody may have heard about this school but we were really impressed. It was warm and welcoming. It felt very low-stress, but they have everything you want in the way of academic programs. Everyone was friendly. The town was adorable.

The campus is gorgeous. It’s up in the [foothills of the] Adirondacks. The facilities are phenomenal, set in the woods. It seemed very flexible academically; kids can go there and figure out what they want to do. There’s a huge array of majors.

And for my child the size was good, about 2,400. That’s a little bigger than the high school my [child] attends.

This is one in a series of reports that parents and students are contributing about their campus tours this spring. If you have visited a school and would like to participate, email me a brief report at You can find out more about College Tour ’10 and how to write about your college visit here.
