Kate Higgins is an administrative assistant in the Office of Admission, and she shared the following post with me:
Each year members of the Colgate community volunteer to be a host parent or family for an international first-year student. Last week I attended a welcome dinner where I met first-year student Chen Cui, who I will be hosting this year. While many of our international first-year students are a long way from home, the host program offers them a support system right here in Hamilton. If you have any questions about life at Colgate, feel free to email a current domestic or international student today!
