About the Open House
Colgate University students are challenged to see themselves honestly and critically within a global and historical perspective. A Colgate education is also designed to inspire students to be engaged citizens and to strive for a just society. These two specific aims within the "13 Goals of a Colgate Education
" are exemplified at our annual Colgate in Focus open house.
This program invites a talented group of high school seniors who have overcome significant challenges in their journey to pursue post-secondary education to our campus to gain insight into the Colgate experience first-hand.
We encourage students living in the United States who identify as low-income, first-generation, or other traditionally underrepresented backgrounds to apply. The diversity open house will provide you with a greater understanding of the Colgate experience. You will meet current students, faculty, and staff, attend a class, tour the campus, and stay overnight in a residence hall, all while participating in activities that highlight the diversity of Colgate's student organizations.
Applications for Colgate in Focus will be available in June and must be submitted by early September. We will review applications and provide decisions on a rolling basis beginning in late July.
