Saratoga Center for the Family's Child Advocacy Center provides counseling and other services to Families and Children. After a fire, the center was reconstructed, but still needed some finishing touches. Rene Alpert, a Skidmore Social Work and Psychology Major interning at the Center reached out to Pro Arts, an art club at Skidmore, who then offered to re-paint the wall in a new design.
Skidmore attracts brains of all kinds: science brains, literary brains, artistic brains, and math brains. But those brains are of one mind. They are Skidmore Minds. The Skidmore Mind can be defined by its sensibilities more than its capabilities. Those sensibilities set it apart from many others and include: passion, curiosity, awareness, tenacity, courage, and confidence. We would like to take you on a journey through the Skidmore Mind and help you understand if your mind may, in fact, be a Skidmore Mind. Beyond your ability to think in numbers, pictures, or words, is there something inside you that will not pick one path, take one side, or settle for half?
