I wanted to go to this university very badly, however, once I got here and saw how cliquey, unfriendly, racist and arrogant the kids were, it completely turned me off since I never expected that. I am middle class and white, and the people surround themselves with the other trust fund babies. My parents don't have the money these people do, and Colgate does not give financial aid (if they do, it did not float this way). I have a few minority friends who were bright and did not get in.Not saying the school is racist, but they are not as diverse as most. They do take AFrican Americans, but you can't find much of any other race. You are isolated with nothing to do except watch the stoners and alkies drink themselves into oblivion. If you have the money, Colgate will take you even with a below 2000 SAT and C's (yes C's!). Rich stoners with C's in high school get in, but smart kids don't on average if they need aid. Don't go here!
