The most prominent stereotype is that all Colgate students are "preppy," the guys wearing pink polos with popped collars, the females decked out in J. Crew from head to foot. We're supposedly all filthy rich and model attractive, maintaining our golden glows and svelte figures as well as our grades. Of course, besides working hard, we're known to party hard and rack up the consequential one-night stands, garnering us our reputation as a "hook-up" campus, rather than one conducive to steady relationships.

Colgate students generally come from upper middle class suburban homes in the New England area. Most are attractive, athletic and intelligent. The campus is white with minimal diversity. Academic experience can be extremely demanding. The dating scene is practically non-existent and hook-ups are the norm. There are few things to do on the weekends other than drink and go to frat parties. Colgate students work hard but party harder. The winters suck.
