Tuition Free Week

Did you know that tuition only covers about 2/3 of what it actually costs to attend Colgate? Tuition Free Week is the point in the semester where your tuition money ‘runs out’ and gifts from Alumni, Parents, Friends, and Students start to fund your education.
Without the support of Colgate Alumni many of your favorite Colgate opportunities would not be available to you. In order to make your Colgate education possible alumni, parents, friends, and students give more than $30 million to Colgate each year! Help us celebrate Tuition Free Week, March 30-April 3, by stopping by one of the events sponsored by the Giving Circle and the Senior Class Gift Committee below.

Happy Tuition Free Week!
