Colgate University celebrated its 200th commencement in 2021.
May 9, 2021
10:30 a.m.–1:30 p.m.
The ceremony begins with a formal procession of the graduating seniors led by a bagpipe troupe. The program will include remarks by President Brian W. Casey; an address by Samantha Power, administrator of the United States Agency for International Development; and presentation of the Class of 2021.
The Senior Torchlight Procession from the upper campus down to Taylor Lake symbolizes the culmination of the graduates’ four years as students, bringing them both together and out into the world with the “light of knowledge” — as represented by the torch on the University seal.Watch video
