Informational Interviews
Non-evaluative informational interviews with a senior admission fellow or an admission officer allow you to learn more about Colgate in a one-on-one setting. This is not a formal assessment that affects the outcome of an application to Colgate; we want to hear about your interests, goals, and answer your questions about academics and student life.

Interviews are available Monday through Friday, from May of a student’s junior year through December of a student's senior year. It is recommended that you register at least three weeks in advance to ensure availability.
Alumni Interviews
If you are unable to visit our campus, we invite you to arrange an informational interview with a member of our alumni community. These informational conversations are available in many areas from September through January of a student’s senior year. E-mail admission@colgate.edu or call 315-228-7401 for more information.
Group Visits
We welcome your group to Colgate’s campus throughout the year. Please use this form to schedule your visit.
