Dear Colgate Alumni,
This site was designed with you in mind. Use it to talk with Alumni Council members about what's going on at the university. The council will use it to let you know what we’re doing for Colgate and the alumni community, as well as to host discussions about Colgate issues. Council members will also be using the site to review meeting agendas, minutes, and voting materials — our newest way to “go green” and save on printing and mailing costs.
It is our pleasure to serve Colgate and its alumni community through our work on the Alumni Council, to represent the alumni voice to Colgate, and to encourage the ongoing excellence of the institution that we all love.
Interested in learning how you can get involved at Colgate? Check out the 13 Ways to Get Involved
page. Know someone you think would be a great addition to the council? Check out the Call for Nominations

Alumni Council President
