Students as Global Citizens
Annually, hundreds of Colgate students participate in semester-long study groups
for credit, short-term extended study and language programs, faculty-led research trips, alternative breaks, volunteer and humanitarian missions, and athletic competitions that take them all over the world.
In fact, we created the first college off-campus study program, established in Washington, D.C.
A recently enacted portable aid policy allows students to use their financial aid
for non-Colgate study abroad programs that have been screened and approved by Colgate, a critical step in providing even more opportunities for students.
Our alumni say taking advantage of off-campus opportunities provided some of the most memorable experiences of their university careers, and often shaped their post-Colgate plans.
