Additional Visit Opportunities

Explore campus for a day and night with a current student. An overnight visit gives you the chance to experience life on the Hill — attend a class, participate in extracurricular activities, eat in a dining hall, and meet with faculty. 

Overnight visits are available for prospective students on four nights throughout the fall semester. Availability is limited and registration is required at least five days prior to the night you wish to stay on campus.


Join first-year and sophomore students in one of our core curriculum classes or another course of your choosing. We will help you select a class at the registration desk on the day of your visit based on current availability.

Interviews are available from May of a student's junior year through December of a student's senior year. Interviews are not a formal assessment that affects the outcome of an application to Colgate. We want to hear about your interests and goals and to answer your questions about academic and student life. Students may not interview multiple times.


We welcome your group to Colgate’s campus throughout the year.


The campus and its surroundings are inspiring.
