Not to be outdone by Colgate, Skidmore College gives you cookies during your tour :) My mint chocolate chip cookie was amazing - as was my day at this incredibly warm, beautiful, nurturing liberal arts college that takes the arts part of liberal arts as seriously as many conservatory programs do. My 5 fun facts about Skidmore are:
1. It's test optional, meaning you don't have to submit standardized test scores
2. It's extremely environmentally conscious with many building using geo thermal heating and cooling and a Skidmore Unplugged contest every fall where the winner is the dorm that reduces its energy usage the most.
3. There's a special First Year Experience program at Skidmore in London. 35 freshmen spend their first Skidmore semester studying in London.
4. Stage Lighting counts as a core course for the quantitative reasoning core requirement.
5. The computers in the library have Photoshop!
