Campus safety is not really strict

The academics can not get any better! Professors are all passionate, rigorous, and intelligent. Classes are small. And you are pushed at the hardest level to do your best in every single academic field at Colgate. YOU SERIOUSLY LEARN.

More then half of campus is in a sport!
College Freshman 2013-11-30T11:54:40Z
Many people drink, but not much peer pressure.
College Freshman 2013-11-30T11:53:53Z
I am almost fully covered!

Guys & Girls:
The hook-up culture is real!

Colgate needs way more diversity at it's campus. One of the very least diverse campuses.

If you need to get home, Colgate will help you.

The academics are amazing at Colgate! No doubt about it! All professors have there Phds, the biggest class is about 18 people, no TA's, and amazing social life.

The weather is very bipolar. One week we had a snow day and a day were it was too hot to wear a coat! It is however manageable and Colgate does an excellent job with snow plowing, the school has an underground heating system designed to heat the ground when snow falls.

When I think nightlife at Colgate, it's the parties! There are parties everyday except for Sundays and Tuesdays. Colgate goes by work hard, PLAY HARD.

Printing is free, computers are everywhere, IT department is always available/helpful, and wireless internet is your average speed.
College Freshman 2013-11-30T11:43:11Z
Living in the school is excellent. The dorms are always constantly being cleaned, the social life is live, and it is pretty convenient.
College Freshman 2013-11-30T11:41:24Z
There are a few restaurants but not many. The worst part are the prices!
College Freshman 2013-11-30T11:39:49Z
You can easily find parking but it is quite distant from dorms and classes.
College Freshman 2013-11-29T18:54:35Z
Personally, I would prefer it if the campus was stricter in their enforcement of their anti-drug and alcohol policies.
College Freshman 2013-11-29T18:53:21Z
Everyone is very accepting of essentially everything. Colgate is full of people who are very kind and understanding of others' preferences, beliefs and lifestyles.
College Freshman 2013-11-29T18:52:11Z
There's a party scene, but I personally hate it.

Health & Safety:
Campus police (known as campo) are pretty awesome-they genuinely care about the safety of their students but also understand that this is a college and kids do stupid things, so unless you're being absolutely ridiculous, they're super nice
College Freshman 2013-11-29T18:48:35Z
It really just depends on where you live. I, for example, have to take an expensive 6 hour bus ride, while my roommate carpools for free and gets home in 2 hours. Hamilton IS a very isolated place, but unless you're going home, you don't generally leave campus.
College Freshman 2013-11-29T18:46:11Z
I love the academic side of Colgate-my classes are wonderful, professors engaging, and opportunities outrageously awesome-but the social aspect of life in Hamilton is harder. I'm not much of a drinker or a partier, but I also don't really care for Dungeons and Dragons, so it can be very difficult to find something to do or someone to hang out with on the weekends. Overall, I would call Colgate a wonderful place, but I'm just not sure it's the place for me.
College Freshman 2013-11-19T22:07:57Z
So far it has been great the people are really nice, the social scene is awesome, my classes are interesting and even though I am across the country I found it easy to adapt and have really enjoyed myself over the past few months.
College Freshman 2013-11-19T22:06:40Z
Colgate is not that divers racially. Otherwise Colgate is EXTREMELY diverse there are so many different people with crazy ideas, personalities and different likes and dislikes. Colgate is a group of people with diverse interest, personalities and ideas.
College Freshman 2013-11-19T22:04:05Z
Only seniors can live off campus but the houses that I have been in so far are very nice and spacious.
College Freshman 2013-11-19T22:02:27Z
Colgate has a lot of school spirit and generally want to be here. The athletics are pretty well supported and games are attended.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
