Colgate Day

Every Friday the 13th, the Colgate community celebrates . . . 

For many, Friday the 13th is a day to be feared. For Colgate alumni, students, employees, families, and friends, it’s a day to celebrate our association with this great institution.

Colgate Day is a worldwide celebration that takes place every Friday the 13th. It’s a day to gather with Colgate friends and show your pride for alma mater, to wear maroon, and to show your love on social media. On Colgate Day we celebrate our Colgate spirit, and our connection with Colgate alumni spread all across the globe. 

Celebrating 50 Years of Women at Colgate

The 2020–2021 academic year marks the 50th anniversary of coeducation at Colgate. This Colgate Day, November 13, we are celebrating this milestone on social media with #ColgateWomen. Recognize someone who has made an impact on your time at Colgate and challenge three friends to do the same. Be sure to head over to on November 13th to see a collection of all of the #ColgateWomen posts.
