You Asked: What’s your favorite time of year?

I love Spring at Skidmore. When the weather is really nice out students sit or lay out on the grass; some are playing games or an instrument, maybe just having a quick chat. Some professors are even willing to have class out doors. And the campus always looks so beautiful with so much green and flowers everywhere.

Ask me anything


Another thing to love about Skidmore: the beauty of the campus. This campus looks absolutely beautiful year round. The campus has a lot of open space and green which makes it a perfect canvas for every season.

Winter covers the campus in a blanket of white. Students sculpting 6 foot tall snow people is a pleasure to see. Facilities is always really good about clearing the path ways and no worries about the cold and/ or snow, nearly the entire campus is covered and many of the academic buildings are connected.

Spring/ Summer means flowers every where. Whoever is in charge of the outdoor landscaping deserves to be awarded. All kinds of flowers tempt visitors to stop and take a sniff and maybe pluck one for an accessory. Students never fail to take advantage of their free time to lay out in the sun or play a few out door sports.

Fiery reds, warm oranges, and vibrant yellows are a sight during the Fall. I think Fall is my favorite, until Spring arrives.

Here is what the campus looks like now. I wish I had a cooler camera so I could do justice to the campus.
