Student & Graduate Reviews (4)

5 out of 5
Degree: Peace Studies and Conflict Resolution
Graduation Year: 2011

Colgate University, located in Hamilton, NY, has first-rate professors who care about their students. The school has a small student body which allows for one-on-one interactions between students and professors. The university's core curriculum was designed to not only teach students about the past but to allow them to question, scrutinize, and analyze through critical thinking. When I graduated, I felt that I was ready to embark on a career and always knew I could turn to my professors and Colgate's vast alumni network for help and further guidance.

Degree: Philosophy and Religious Studies, General
Graduation Year: 1996

Though I graduated several decades ago, my Colgate degree has served me well during my career. While there, I made lasting relationships with students and professors. The classrooms were engaging and the discussion challenging. I was held to an impeccable standard by my professors, and my fellow classmates asked probing questions in the classroom and out. Colgate offered me a what would be considered the ideal liberal arts education, providing me with a foundation of inquiry which still enriches my life.

Degree: Educational Statistics and Research Methods
Graduation Year: 2015

Colgate University is located in the small town of Hamilton, New York. Its remote, relatively isolated location allows for a close community of students and professors. Colgate's biggest strength is its network of professors and alumni as both are geared towards student success and growth. Alumni are actively available in almost every field, and are dedicated to helping all generations of Colgate students. Professors have the luxury of smaller class sizes and as such, are driven to reach out to individual students for research and other educational opportunities. They are constantly available for student support, and often build close working relationships with students. Colgate has its fair share of problems, as many universities do. It lacks diversity, and sometimes struggles to address pressing student needs. Much of its financial attention goes to undergraduate departments that produce financially high achieving alumni (like economics, and some hard sciences). Nevertheless, pockets of amazing supports exist throughout Colgate as professors and alumni create a powerful network for all Colgate students. My particular department, educational studies, was an incredible example of one of these pockets. I formed incredibly close bonds with fellow students and professors and was able to access a variety of research opportunities.
