Colgate is a distinctive, leading American university known for its intellectual rigor, world-class professors, campus of stunning beauty, and alumni famously loyal to their alma mater.
Colgate’s scale is unlike any in America. We are small enough for students to build relationships with their professors, yet large enough to support top scholars in every field. We offer a surprisingly vast array of classes and majors. Undergraduates in every major undertake serious research here. Off-campus and international study options prevail, and all our classes are taught by leading scholars in their fields. At Colgate, teaching is a clear priority. This is a place of intellectual rigor and engagement.
