Colgate’s Multicultural Open House is typically held in November. It is a university tradition and a special opportunity to experience campus life. “The Multicultural Open House was a great way for me to get a good sense of the university. I applied Early Decision as soon as I returned home!” –Kori Strother ’15

We encourage students with an interest in Colgate to attend the program. For many prospective students, the Open House provides a greater understanding of the Colgate experience. You will meet current students, faculty, and staff, all while participating in activities sponsored by multicultural student organizations, attending classes, and touring the campus. Take a look at last year’s Open House schedule.

How do I apply?

An application helps us select students who will take full advantage of their campus visit. Space is limited, and we are only able to invite students who are seniors in high school. We will review open house applications on a rolling basis, so it is possible to receive earlier notification by submitting your application before the deadline.

If I have more questions, whom should I contact?
