    Career development center, grad school fairs

    English and Music (Double Major), Class of 2009

    There was a fairly robust (but, in my opinion, underutilized) career center. There is a network of alumns who students can contact regarding various fields (i.e. if you think you want to go to law school you can contact an alumn in the network and talk to them about their career).

    Skidmore provided students with the study and organizational skills necessary to operate in the professional environment or continue on to graduate school. Within the depts. there were opportunities for internships according to major and other networking.

    Open-minded, strong willingness to learn and better themselves as citizens of the world, fairly liberal, definitely not traditional

    English and Music (Double Major), Class of 2009

    Pretty diverse - there were students of varied races, socioeconomic statuses, etc. and many student groups to reflect this (clubs, music groups, sports, etc.).

    All were great. Had ample access to computers, classrooms were in good shape, dorms and apartments good, dining hall excellent

    Great! They renovated the dining hall my second year and it's beautiful (and lots of good food!). The dorms are also nice compared to others - spacious and also many recently-renovated.

    A cappella groups, outing club (hiking, rock climbing, etc)

    A capella groups were as popular as Greek life is at other schools. Drama and the arts are all popular, unsurprisingly. Sports were also a focus for many students, though not like in a Division 1 school.

    Not unique anymore but there are many a capella groups on campus.
