Welcome back everyone!

Whether you’ve just returned from a semester abroad or this is your first semester on campus (hi, London freshmen!!), we are eager to hear all about your recent studies and travels. Come share your stories and catch up with other study abroad returnees this week at our Welcome Back event, Lively Lucy Goes Global!

When: January 28, 2016, 7-9pm

Where: Falstaff’s

What: Esperanto’s pizza & doughboys, live music, a student photo gallery, & a raffle!


For those of you who are starting to plan your time abroad, be sure to mark our upcoming Off-Campus Study Fair on your calendars–it’s a great opportunity to learn about the various types and locations of programs that Skidmore offers and approves, and to speak directly with their representatives.

When: Wednesday, February 3, 2016, 11:30-2:30pm

Where: Case Center, Second Floor


Finally, we’ve hired four new student bloggers for the spring semester! Follow along as they explore a range of cultures and approach their studies through hands-on field work or home stays, studying graphic design illustration, sustainable development, Spanish, and geologic formations.
