Organization

Colgate is a nationally recognized liberal arts college set on a beautiful campus in central New York.

Some 2,900 undergraduates are enrolled in 54 programs, taking advantage of the university's award-winning curriculumoff-campus study program, and numerous research opportunities.

Students enjoy small class sizes taught by expert faculty members -- not teaching assistants.

The university’s strategic plan offers a blueprint for turning today’s students into tomorrow’s leaders, joining the scores of alumni already playing major roles in a variety of fields. The Center for Career Services is a key player as students make this transition.

Colgate hums with activity. It is a place where the arts thrive. Student-athletes compete at the very highest level of NCAA Division I sports. There are dozens of club and intramural sports programs, and the college’s outdoor education program is second to none.

Above all, Colgate is about academic excellence. It is a tradition forged in 1819 and honed through the years by each class of select students.

Colgate University is a highly selective residential liberal arts institution distinguished by academic excellence and interdisciplinary inquiry. Located on a beautiful campus in upstate New York, Colgate takes pride in the active engagement of its students, staff, and faculty in local, national, and global communities. At Colgate, we feel that a diverse and inclusive community is a cornerstone of educational excellence.
