International Students

We strive for a diverse community with outlets that are representative of not only our nation, but of the world. Colgate is an environment where students can appreciate and explore their own cultures as well as those of the people around them.
Prepared by interdisciplinary studies focused around universally marketable skills, Colgate students take impressive strides after their four years. In a PayScale.com study that examined salaries, Colgate was ranked 12th among all universities and colleges included in the study, tied with Yale University. On campus, our Office of International Student Services will help you find success at Colgate.
