Interviewing at Colgate

By Molly Kunzman on July 30, 2012

Planning your campus visit to Colgate this summer? In addition to registering for a tour and information session you can also sign up for an informational interview! It is a wonderful way for you to ask your questions on specific interests in a one-on-one setting and learn more about what Colgate has to offer!

Interviews are fun. I always enjoy hearing about the amazing things that students are passionate about and the activities and subjects they are looking to pursue in college.

Here are three great interview tips! 1) Tell us about your passions. Colgate students are motivated and we are interested in getting to know what drives you. 2) Elaborate on your answers. We want hear what you have to say, so be prepared to expand upon your academic and extracurricular interests. 3) Come with questions. The most important aspect of the interview is that you leave Colgate with all of your questions answered.

Summer interviews are available during the week at 8:30, 10:00, 10:45, 11:30, 1:00, 1:45, 2:30, and 3:45. Contact the Office of Admission at (315) 228-7401 or email admission@colgate.edu to schedule an interview. We look forward to meeting you!
