When I was looking at schools, I was checking out a lot of East Coast (or as I like to say, Beast Coast) liberal arts colleges. Most were on the smaller side: Vassar, Middlebury, Emerson, Williams and Bard. Some were bigger, like Boston University and Northeastern. I also looked at University of Vermont, mostly because it’s a ten minute drive from my house.
Looking at a bunch of small liberal arts colleges was complicated at best and overwhelming at worst, but that also helped me to pay attention to the little things that made the schools more individual. After visiting all the campuses, the atmosphere on the Skidmore campus definitely stood out in my mind.
Thanks for your question!
