As Colgate builds its student body, we seek to create a community of talented individuals with diverse skills, interests, and backgrounds who will enrich the overall campus experience and mirror the multidimensional world that students will enter after graduation.
Only with adequate resources for financial aid can the university ensure that it will be able to enroll highly qualified students regardless of their economic backgrounds.
Competition for the best students is intense, and financial aid packaging is critical in attracting these students — especially given the current financial climate. To remain competitive, Colgate needs more than great faculty, a wonderful curriculum, and a beautiful campus: it needs financial aid resources on par with those offered by some of the nation's wealthiest institutions.
