Skidmore was a great place to get an education. Wonderful and beautiful campus, high-quality professors, and a lot of flexibility. Great dorms, great food, great town. The price is outrageous for a bachelor's degree, but the high-end quality of the campus and the surrounding area is certainly costly. Great diversity in terms of personality type - students are athletes, artists, business majors and philosophy majors.
Skidmore offered a quality liberal arts education. Professors are wildly knowledgeable and are committed to individualized learning, attention, and growth. The most beneficial aspect of my time in college was the relationships I created with mentors and the opportunities for internships, work, and recommendations.
