First-year students take a group photo together in front of Colgate Memorial Chapel

Learning here, living here, and climbing the hill of our campus, you feel it: We are always ascending.

 

It is our mission to develop thinkers who value intellectual rigor and who are capable of challenging themselves and others with vigor and reason.

We choose sophisticated students who will grow in both confidence and humility, and who will seek a global perspective in shaping their own. Our students carry our values.

One day they will carry the value of a Colgate degree, which opens doors with its reputation for academic excellence.
