The Explore workshop was designed as a service for the Colgate alumni community. Rising high school juniors and seniors — who are children and/or grandchildren of Colgate alumni — are invited to learn about the college search and selection process.

The workshop is broad-based and covers the selective college admission process generally (not Colgate admission specifically). The program takes place in the summer, and details and pricing will be available shortly.
