Yikes! You guys start arriving on campus tomorrow. Well we hope you have a great move in day and we’re looking forward to meeting you. Remember, if you placed your textbook order online, you will need your order number and an photo ID to pick up your books.

(@skidmorecollege) It’s almost like finding out that the band KISS is nothing but four dudes from New York, and not a cat, spaceman, the devil..and a dude with a star for an eye
(@skidmorecollege) Higgs Boson explained the easiest way
Hey there Skidmore peeps. If you’re like me, you ain’t no physics wiz..which means the recent announcement that scientists have proof of the higgs boson particle (so called God Particle) left you scratching your head a bit. Well this video helps explain things so even I can understand what the heck it is I’m suppose to be excited about.
For all you physics know-it-alls..disregard this post.
(@skidmorecollege) Reunion Weekend!
Hi everyone! We’re prepping the store for all of you returning Skidmore grads. We heard the weather wasn’t going to be the best..but does it matter? The college has a lot of great events planned for all of you, and the Skidmore Shop will be open the entire weekend for all of your Skidmore goods. Don’t forget, to check out our Skidmore Shop Friday Farmers Market here on campus. They will be here at 11am in front of The Skidmore Shop with locally grown apples, veggies and other great items from local farms. Also, on Saturday we will have David and Helen Porter here for a book signing at 1pm.
Looking forward to seeing all of you.
