Students have designed apps, established foundations, started businesses, and competed for research grants while still fully engaged in scholarly and athletic activities.
Among the many clubs and programs available to students are the Entrepreneurs Club
, which supports its members in ventures and start-ups intended to enact positive change within the Colgate community. Entrepreneur Weekend features outside speakers, and Real World
brings alumni from many career fields back to campus to share career experiences.
A new and rapidly growing program called Thought Into Action (TIA) at Colgate University
pairs successful alumni entrepreneurs with students to help the students start up their own business or not-for-profit organization. TIA is a year-long program where students turn their ideas into businesses, non-profits, and clubs.
TIA students get a chance at the life-changing experience of creating something that didn't exist before.
