Colgate at 200 Years

Recommended Posts

My dear soon-to-be alma mater, Colgate, will celebrate its 200th anniversary next academic year. I was pleasantly surprised to find a video explaining the font and logo choice.

The only reason I have ever even heard of Colgate is because former NBA player Adonal Foyle went to college there.  That's the only time I have heard this school mentioned in any context.  (If they are any good at sports, I wouldn't know, because I am not a college sports fan). 

 

For the longest time, I thought it was a school located somewhere in the Caribbean since my only association with the school was Adonal Foyle.

Yeah, he had offers from everywhere but only went to Colgate because his adopted parents were professors there. We're a D-1 Patriot League school, so think of us as competing with Bucknell, Holy Cross, Lehigh, Lafayette, etc.
