Group Visits

Colgate offers group visit options most months of the year. Requests are considered on a case-by-case basis after meeting the following guidelines:

  • Students in group are in 10th, 11th, or 12th grade 
  • Due to space limitations, groups must be smaller than 30 students at once, with one adult for every ten students.

High volume visitor traffic and the academic and recruitment calendars mean group visits cannot be accommodated during the months of December, January, March, April, and May.
