SARATOGA SPRINGS–With recent legislation making higher education continually more financially implausible, Skidmore has been looking for new ways for students to save money. One of the most promising changes the administration is making for the upcoming semester is replacing Blackboard with a new platform called “Blackbeard.” Whereas on Blackboard professors could just simply post readings, Blackbeard will allow students to save hundreds of dollars in exorbitant textbook fees by providing several links to websites and data storages for students to pillage through and find their books for free! That’s right! Absolutely free! Please contact the registr-arrrr for more information on how to sign up.
