SkidMeme: Double Majors

 

The meme craze; It’s funny how much a few words and a face expression can say.  Add Skidmore to the mix and what do you get? A whole lot of inside jokes for the Skidmore students.  But have no fear I am here to explain the SkidMemes.

“Oh, you say you’re a double major? Well aren’t you special”

A sarcastic play on how common it is for students to double major on this campus- double minors are quiet common as well; my housemate is a triple minor.  Some would say its a weird obsession with over achieving that comes over the Skidmore students upon arrival on campus. I’d say its the product of having a campus full of passionate students. We as people can easily be interested in a number of things. Skidmore encourages its students to fulfill all of these interests even if its something as “odd” as computer science and dance, for instance. These “odd” combinations are far from odd here. What can I say? Here, Creative Thought Matters.
