Colgate prepares its students for successful careers, andQuite BrightEconomics
Colgate prepares its students for successful careers, and its alumni/ae are its invaluable resource. A Colgate degree is worth its weight in gold in the workforce, especially in financial markets. No school produces more loyal, dedicated and proud alumni/ae than Colgate. We bleed maroon and relish the number 13!

Colgate is an amazing place.Quite BrightPolitical Science
Colgate is an amazing place. The campus is extraordinarily beautiful; the professors are outstanding and professional. The alumni are very supportive of the school and the undergraduates, and maintain relationships with their Colgate colleagues throughout their lives. The success of undergraduates in athletics and other competitive activities (e.g., debate) is extraordinary given the small size of the school and its primary emphasis on academics.
