Colgate University is a private liberal arts institution providing excellent academics in rural Hamilton. The surrounding countryside of Central N.Y. is extremely picturesque, but it is definitely isolated. Most do not view this as a drawback, rather as a magnet for the students and 3000 residents to mix and interact creating a tight knit community. Hamilton College is a short drive away, in the nearby town of Clinton.
Breakfast: It’s convenient—start the day at the Tavern at The Colgate Inn.
Casual: Every campus has a student favorite for pizza. At Colgate, everyone loves Slices. Zagats ranked it as one of the top pizza places in the U.S.—pretty impressive for tiny Hamilton. In the mood for Mexican - La Iguana makes all the sauces from scratch for their enchiladas, tacos and burritos, topped with fresh made guacamole.
A Step Up: The Colgate Inn has three restaurants to choose from. The Madison Room offers a seasonal menu with daily specials. The more casual Tavern offers soups and salads and Rathskeller boasts over 20 craft beers.
