A tradition of academic excellence 1


Since 1819, students have traveled to our hillside campus in Hamilton, N.Y., on a quest for knowledge and understanding. Their studies, experiences, and actions change the world.

Living Writers Students in the Living Writers course read 10 works of contemporary literature and then meet the authors on campus. Past guests include Jonathan Franzen, Marjane Satrapi, and Salman Rushdie. Alice Sebold, author of The Lovely Bones, is slated to visit in 2017.

2


English Professor Peter Balakian won the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Poetry.

Art and Art History Professor Elizabeth Marlowe examines limestone Egyptian reliefs with her seminar students. 3


Where research and academics are one

4


Biology Professor Engda Hagos works with students in the Office of Undergraduate Studies to identify cancer cells in the lab.

Research here is conducted by students in DIRECT COLLABORATION with the faculty. This special connection is guaranteed thanks to the absence of teaching assistants.

5


In a transformative living experience Living on campus is more important than simply finding a place to nap after a long study session.

Our Residential Commons program for first-year students and sophomores supports the academic and social transition to college. Take in a trivia night, attend a group discussion, or go on a trip together to a local orchard. You never know where you’ll meet a new friend. colgate.edu/commons


Frank Dining Hall is open 24/7.

Two new residence halls, scheduled to open in 2019, will become spaces for collaboration, intellectual exploration, and student-faculty engagement.

A second home

Each mug in the chapel basement represents an individual student who drops by to talk, study, or just relax in this friendly and supportive space that is home to Colgate’s religious communities. There are no barriers to entry, and everyone is welcome here, religious or not.

“When I walk to class in the fall, I can’t do it without smiling.” – Michael Rapaport ’18, East Amherst, N.Y.

Embrace four seasons

Get dirty in the Community Garden, show your fall spirit, celebrate Holi, or try your hand at ice climbing. There are countless ways to enjoy this scenic region. colgatewinter.com

11


Our classrooms are everywhere

In 2017, Associate Professor of English and Africana and Latin American Studies Kezia Page guided students through a cultural exploration of Jamaica. The waterfall? That’s a study break.

12


With more than 100 APPROVED OFF-CAMPUS STUDY PROGRAMS around the world and across the U.S., Colgate students have the opportunity to explore and discover outside the classroom.

13


Connected by the core A distinction since 1928, Colgate’s expansive core curriculum brings students and faculty together through intellectual exploration of fundamental works and ideas.

14


While these carefully designed courses prepare you as a critical thinker and provide the liberal arts flexibility employers cherish, they are just one slice of your overall education. Five of the 32 course credits needed for graduation are part of the core. Legacies of the Ancient World Challenges of Modernity Communities and Identities Scientific Perspectives on the World Global Engagements Examples include: The Science and Potential Implications of Nanotechnology Life in the Universe: A Cosmic Perspective Russia at the Crossroads of East and West African American Struggle-Freedom

32 COURSE CREDITS

Where traditions are timeless From lucky 13 to Willow Path and Dancefest, Colgate’s spirit endures through our traditions.


“The Colgate spirit as I see it allows us to open our eyes to other points of view and grow and learn from each other. It is the heartbeat of this campus today, and has been for the last 200 years.” – Blaise Desnoes ’17, Indian Wells, Calif., political science and philosophy

21


Even Raiders rest

22

Take the Colgate Cruiser into the buzzing NEXT-DOOR VILLAGE for a bowl of ramen and a little frozen yogurt before taking in a first-run movie at the Hamilton Movie Theater.


If you need to stretch afterward, It’s a 10-minute walk back to campus. Just outside the village, you’ll find yourself in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains, one of the nation’s largest state parks.

23


Your success matters From your first day on campus to your first job interview, and far beyond graduation, Colgate is with you every step of the way. Career connections and friendships are made and maintained with the help of our professional networks. Common Good Network Consulting Network Digital Business and Technology Network Entrepreneur Network Finance and Banking Network Health and Wellness Network Lawyers Association Marketing, Media & Communications Network Real Estate Council STEM Network Affinity groups include Alumni of Color Fraternity/sorority alumni organizations Konosioni
