The Colgate essay

By Karen Giannino on October 19, 2010

We had lunch today with several members of the Class of 2014 to get their advice on the admission process and to better understand how students use the web through the college search process. They suggested we make it easy for applicants to find our supplemental essay question, so here it is!

“We honor the many different forms of diversity in our community. Your perspective is valuable because it comes from your life experiences, family background, culture, and traditions. Please tell us about a tradition that is important to you that comes from your family, community, or culture.”

We can’t wait to read what you have to say. For more information on applying, go to our website.
