Colgate in Focus: A Diversity Open House

A student rides his bike on the academic quad between classes.

Colgate in Focus provides students with a greater understanding of the Colgate experience by allowing them to meet current students, engage with faculty members, and learn more about the diversity of Colgate's student organizations. The program is geared toward rising high school seniors who identify as low-income, first-generation, or other traditionally underrepresented backgrounds who have overcome unique personal or structural challenges in their journey to pursue post-secondary education.

Traditionally, Colgate in Focus is held as an on-campus program including opportunities to attend a class, tour the campus, and stay overnight in a residence hall. In response to COVID-19, the 2020 edition of Colgate in Focus will adopt an online format, offering the same in-depth look into the Colgate experience through a series of virtual events and webinars. 

The most impactful part of my experience was when President Casey and Dean Hucks joined us for dinner. It shows how connected and involved they are with students on campus. I genuinely experienced a day in the life of a student at Colgate in Focus.
