Group Visits

We welcome school group and organizations to visit campus Monday through Friday to learn more about Skidmore. We ask that requests for group visits be made at least three weeks in advance of your visit date.

Group visits are designed to include a one-hour walking tour with a Skidmore student guide and/or a 30-minute group information session led by an admissions counselor. Staff from our Opportunity Program (HEOP and AOP) may also be available to address visiting groups. Groups must be accompanied by a teacher/chaperone/parent at all times. We require one chaperone for every 10 students. Groups are encouraged to arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of the visit.

Lunch or dinner are available at a cost of $11.50 and $14.25 (if tax-exempt), respectively, and can be arranged through the Admissions Office. Please let us know if you require an invoice.

For more information about group visits, please email or call (518) 580-5570.
