Skidmore College is an academically rigorous campus. Getting accepted is a challenge as well as staying afloat when a student here. However, I do not consider Skidmore a competitive school. In other words there isn’t a cut throat atmosphere, students are not choking each other in hopes of killing the competition. It is much more common to see students assisting each other inside and outside of the classroom. This sense of community makes for a much more comfortable environment.
