Creativity: more valuable than ever
In a rapidly changing world, we can no longer approach new problems with old ways
of thinking. Locally, globally and in mind, body and spirit, creativity is a necessity.
That's where Skidmore comes in.
Welcome to a beautiful small city bursting with local charm, vibrant history
and nestled near the Adirondack, Berkshire and Green Mountains. Plus, we're only a
three-hour drive to Boston, Montreal or New York City.
Feed your wanderlust. It's easy here. We've approved more than 118 programs in
45 countries for you to choose from as well as dozens of opportunities for short-term
trips through coursework or research.
Many colleges will tout green promises, rankings and certifications. Few can
do so knowing that their sustainability initiatives are powered by student activism
and grounded by student research. We can.
