Skidmore is excited about Commencement 2017!

Due to the enthusiasm that has been generated following the announcement of this year's honorary degree recipients (Wes Moore! Ann Tisch! Oprah!), Skidmore will institute a policy whereby admission tickets for seats in the amphitheater of the Saratoga Performing Arts Center (SPAC) will be REQUIRED for each guest except for children under the age of 2.

The College's first priority is to provide seats for our graduates and their families based on the allowable seating capacity within the Amphitheater. Therefore, a maximum of six (6) tickets will be allocated to graduating seniors for admission of family members and friends.

Additional seating for the ceremony will be available on the SPAC lawn and tickets will not be required for this area. There will be ample seating on the lawn area for additional family members, guests and community members and tickets will NOT be required for this area. Guests seated on the lawn may bring blankets and lawn chairs (under 24" height) for use in this area. For SPAC's ground rules, please go to the SPAC website.
