Student Ratings

Alumnus - Grad Year 2004

Academics Rating

Colgate is a small liberal arts college so the programs offered are relatively slim. If you're looking to be an engineer, you should probably look elsewhere. It's difficult to compare professors and workload to other schools without actually attending those other schools but from what I hear, compared to other colleges Colgate professors have more personal connections with students and give out much longer papers. Classes are almost always tiny in comparison with state schools, and be ready to be surrounded by some very opinionated and hard-working students.

Alumnus - Grad Year 2006

Academics Rating

As an English and Education major, my classes were on average between 15 and 25. Most of my classes were evaluated based on papers, projects and presentations. As a result I enjoy project work that requires/allows me to present to my peers and superiors in both small and large groups. I think this is a relatively unique opinion.
