Virtual Interviews

Our virtual tour and information session are a great introduction to Colgate University, but we know you may have additional questions or desire additional perspective. Virtual interviews are an opportunity to meet 1:1 with a current Colgate student to have your questions answered, and gain valuable insight from those that know Colgate best. 


Interviews are not evaluative nor required for admission.

The campus and its surroundings are inspiring.
