Colgate University Self-Guided Tour

Colgate University located in Hamilton Village, New York. Colgate is a private liberal arts school competing in the Patriot League conference with approximately 3,000 undergraduate students. In 2018, Colgate opened their new Center for Career Services, Benton Hall, a $16.4 million, 17,000 square foot building committed to providing students with the support they need for life after college.

“Colgate's lucky number is 13. It is said that Colgate was founded by 13 men who each offered 13 dollars and 13 prayers. Therefore, the biggest holiday celebrated on campus is Friday the 13th … a.k.a.
