Family Weekend

By Emily Thigpen on November 1, 2011

This past weekend Colgate held its annual Family Weekend, which included a Colgate home football game. I was looking forward to going to the game (since I missed a few because of a fall travel!), so a few of us bundled up and headed out to the stadium. As we climbed up to our seats, I noticed some familiar faces — Billy, Cindy, and Mike. I met Billy and his mom at a college fair in Florida last September. We stayed in touch throughout the entire application process and I was thrilled when Billy accepted his offer of admission to attend Colgate. So, it was such a welcomed surprise to see Billy and his parents this past weekend! There were plenty of smiles all around and I could tell that Billy was happy to show his family his new home away from home.
