Dear Colgate Legacy Families,

The Office of Alumni Relations invites you to 2014 Explore: A College Admission Workshop. The workshop is targeted for rising high school juniors and seniors, who are sons, daughters, and/or grandchildren of Colgate alumni. I invite you to spend a couple of days at Colgate to gain further understanding about the college search and selection process, regardless of schools you are applying to.

The workshop is designed as a service to our Colgate community. Parents and students will be advised on basics of the college admission process. Colgate staff members will lead various sessions on topics that include guidelines for researching colleges, how to prepare for a campus visit, tips for completing your application, and an in-depth look at the selection process through a mock-application review. The workshop will be broad-based, covering selective college admission rather than Colgate admission specifically.

As you plan your summer travels, please consider joining us on Thursday, July 24 - Friday, July 25, 2014. Lodging in the residence halls will be offered on Thursday evening. Dinner on Thursday as well as breakfast and lunch on Friday are included in your registration. Registration is set to open March 3. Sign up early since space at the 2014 Explore: A College Admission Workshop is limited. 

My best from campus,
