Other Information

Among the top liberal arts colleges in the country, Colgate University is renowned for its academic rigor, the beauty, and vitality of its campus, and the contributions of its alumni across a variety of fields and endeavors, who are exceptionally engaged with the institution. Larger than classic liberal arts colleges, Colgate boasts both substantial academic offerings as well as small classes, a strong emphasis on faculty-student interaction, and a residential community valuing all forms of intellectual curiosity. Colgate’s faculty members are leading teachers and scholars, committed to intellectual engagement in all its forms. Colgate’s approximately 2,900 highly motivated students achieve academically, athletically, and artistically, and are actively engaged in the world around them. Colgate is committed to attracting and retaining a diverse faculty, staff, and student population, fostering an inclusive community that embraces and values diversity in an environment of mutual respect, communication, and engagement.

Colgate was first founded in 1817 as The Baptist Education Society of the State of New York by 13 men with $13 and 13 prayers. The number 13 is still Colgate’s lucky number; Friday the 13th is always designated Colgate Day. New York State granted the school a formal charter in 1819, and the Baptists in New York City — soap maker William Colgate among them — consolidated their seminary with the Hamilton school to form the Hamilton Literary and Theological Institution in 1823. A state charter issued in 1846 changed the name to Madison University and established the right to grant degrees. Madison was changed to Colgate in 1890, in honor of the Colgate family’s enduring support.

Today, Colgate is a thriving, highly selective liberal arts institution. Located in the geographic center of New York State. Colgate’s campus in Hamilton, N.Y., boasts carefully preserved architecture, immaculate grounds, and a hillside setting. It is consistently named one of the most beautiful in the nation. It is a friendly and close-knit place where students develop lifelong bonds with the institution, with each other, and with faculty and staff members. More than 110 buildings on the 575-acre campus (the oldest dating back to 1827) and in Hamilton house Colgate’s core educational, administrative, and student life functions. Faculty and staff members make intentional choices to live and work in Hamilton, New York, and this leads to a strong scholarly community that provides the foundation for undergraduate education and preparation for life after college that is unique to Colgate.

The University’s academic program is grounded in its Liberal Arts Core Curriculum, which has been in place since 1928 and is required of every undergraduate. The five core classes are Legacies of the Ancient World, Challenges of Modernity, Communities and Identities, Scientific Perspectives on the World, and Global Engagements. Undergraduates may choose from 56 majors and more than 40 additional minors. Classes are small, averaging 17 students, and are taught by nearly 300 full-time faculty members, 99 percent of whom have received a Ph.D. or terminal degree in their field. Students are encouraged to collaborate with faculty members in research efforts, and Colgate undergraduates have co-authored articles in professional publications for more than 30 years.

Colgate also has a rich tradition of international and off-campus study and has one of the largest faculty-led off-campus study programs in the nation. The University is ranked first by the Institute of International Education in the percentage of students participating in mid-length off-campus study programs. The off-campus study groups run for an entire semester, in locations around the world, including Africa, Australia, Asia, Europe, South America, and within the United States. Extended study programs offer students between two and five weeks of study following the end of the semester. Through these and, more than 100 other affiliated programs, roughly two-thirds of Colgate students will study off-campus during their undergraduate years.

In recent years, the University has made significant investments in the campus in support of students’ academic and overall development, most notably construction of Benton Hall, the new home of Colgate’s comprehensive career development initiatives; the addition of the Class of 1965 Arena to its athletics facilities; and a new middle campus quad featuring two new residence halls that will provide spaces for collaboration, intellectual exploration, and student-faculty engagement. They will open later in 2019.

With its endowment valued at more than $900 million and an annual operating budget just above $200 million, Colgate holds a AA credit rating with S&P, which was reaffirmed in October 2018. In addition, Moody’s Investment Service affirmed Colgate’s Aa3 rating in August 2017 based on the University’s excellent strategic positioning as a highly selective private liberal arts school with a robust market and sizeable financial resources.

Hamilton and the Surrounding Community

Founded in 1795, the Village of Hamilton, named one of the friendliest towns in the United States by Forbes magazine, has a population of roughly 4,000. The Hamilton Village Historic District was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984 and is home to an eclectic mix of shops and restaurants. The area is ideal for outdoor recreation including biking, hiking, trail running, and skiing. Colgate’s golf course, Seven Oaks, was designed by Robert Trent Jones and has been repeatedly recognized as one of the best college golf courses in the country. The University’s location provides easy access for summer hikes and winter ski trips. It is less than a one-hour drive from Syracuse, four hours away from New York City, and five hours from Boston.

Colgate and Hamilton have formed the Partnership for Community Development, which develops an active network of professional consultants, foundations, municipalities, and not-for-profit organizations located throughout the Central New York region to assist area residents, businesses, and visitors. This includes efforts to stimulate and support local business through small business development and the revitalization of historic buildings. To strengthen the relationship between the village and the University, and to add to the economic development of downtown, Colgate relocated its campus bookstore to the downtown area of the village. Similarly, Colgate owns the Palace Theater, a 300-seat performing arts venue that is leased to an external nonprofit arts organization.
