It's almost time to take a break from studying for finals and writing those last minute papers, because the best night of the year is this Sunday: Wafflefest! Let's be honest, plates full of breakfast foods and desserts make everything better, so head down to the Dining Hall to indulge in some delicious treats. With all the hard work you're doing, you know you deserve it. Admission is free for all students, so Wafflefest will likely be packed by 8pm. Make sure to get there early if you want to avoid waiting in line for your favorite pancakes, waffles, breakfast sandwiches, and dessert pizzas. See you all there!     READ MORE

At a small school like Skidmore, there is always gossip about guys. As much as we love advice from our girls, we decided to go straight to the source to find out what guys really like, and what they don’t. We asked Peter ’14, John ’14, Steve ’14, George ’15, Mario ’16,  and Luke ’12 (all names have been changed) for their opinions on some of our burning questions.
