            Serious Academics, Serious FunI spent some time at Colgate while in high school and instantly fell in love with the campus and its promise of the classic liberal arts experience. My time as both a student and an alumnus have been very rewarding. I made valuable friendships with professors and classmates while at school, and new friends long afterwards. 'Tis a great institution worthy of its sons and daughters.
