Description

Roe Raymond, '08, majored in religious studies, is from central New Jersey. He remembers the first night on campus as having some returning students come to Jonsson Tower and invite first years to join them at an event. That welcome helped break the ice. His major required lots of interdisciplinary study, including in sociology. He studied abroad in Paris, learning about history and travel. Living in France and outside the "Skidmore bubble" helped him decide how to focus on how best to use his remaining semesters on campus. He was part of Skidmore's Cycling Club, and also sang in the chorus. His bike, meant to be a large part of the Paris study-abroad experience, was waylaid by the airline, and arrived with only a month to spare. He was able to reconnect with his professors when applying to graduate school, and appreciated their being 'a huge resource.' He appreciated the open converstions in classrooms, and how faculty guided conversations rather than dictating. The importance of looking at all sides, and hearing different perspectives with respect, was very important to his program, particularly a course on religion and violence which considered the September 2001 attacks.
