You Asked: parents, changes, professors, Spring Break, and internships!

how did your parents feel about you choosing to attend skidmore ?

My mother was thrilled. She trusts my decision making skills and was well aware that Skidmore is a fantastic school. Seeing how happy I have been in the last few years, I am sure she is still very happy with the decision I made.

is there anything you would have done differently during the last few years?

I wish I would have attended more events. Thought that would mean I am also wishing to split myself in four people and have more time in the day.

have you ever had a favorite professor ?

Yes I have. I have had about two favorites along the way. These professors were the warmest of the bunch and the funniest. Should I say names? …. NAAAAHHHH

when is your spring break ? and how much time off do you get ?

Spring Break was about two weeks ago. We are given one week off. Once Spring Break is over, you realize the year is almost over. Wow !

What type of internship programs does Skidmore sponsor?

My experience getting internships was a little different. When I realized I wanted to work with at- risk youth I decided that I wanted to intern at youth shelters. I told a professor about this and he made a few phone calls to a few of his contacts and within the next week I was working at a youth shelter in Balston Spa which is the nest town over. The following semester I did the same thing and was working at a different youth shelter in Malta, also one town over. Some course require internship work which can make things pretty easy. Career services is also a fantastic resource. They can get students in touch with local businesses and organizations, alumni, and parents of students.
If you want the experience, you will find it.
