Alumnus - Grad Year 2004

College Life Rating

Let's face it: Colgate is populated by a lot of rich white kids who did pretty well on their SATs. This fact leads a student life to caters to this type of student. Expect a large emphasis on Greek life and house parties. Athletics is big, mostly because most students are athletes in some way, but, aside from the annual Colgate vs. Cornell hockey game, I wouldn't call Colgaters an especially sports-rabid fan base. Spring Party Weekend is the biggest social event of the year so if you need to visit campus for a weekend, that's the time to do it. And don't forget to stop by the Jug for a beer and some bad dancing.

Alumnus - Grad Year 2006

College Life Rating

I look back longingly at my freshman year dorm experience. Many of my closest college friendships were formed in the long corridors of Curtis 3rd floor. As a Varsity Athlete I was often wandering back from the athletic fields late at night and never felt unsafe.
