Inside the 'Gate


Special guests

By Karen Giannino on November 3, 2009


Tony Blair visited Colgate Saturday as part of our Global Leaders Lecture Series. (Sue, Caroline, and I ushered the event — hence the all-black uniform.) The former prime minister’s visit coincided with Family Weekend. Besides enjoying a terrific speech, it was a treat for us to see parents and siblings of current students. We connect with students and their families during the admission process, and sometimes as we get busy working on the next class, it’s difficult to stay close to current students. This weekend gave us a chance to catch up with many families. For more on Blair’s visit, go to our news and events page.
