Colgate Admission Conversations
Meet virtually with a current Colgate student
Our virtual tour, information session, and campus visit are a great introduction to Colgate University, but we know you may have additional questions or desire additional perspective. Colgate Admission Conversations, formerly referred to as virtual interviews, are a great opportunity for current high school seniors to meet 1:1 with a current Colgate student to have your questions answered and gain valuable insight from those who know Colgate best.
Colgate Admission Conversations, as part of Colgate’s admission process, are not required, and are non-evaluative.
The campus and its surroundings are inspiring.Eric Fishbin ’20
