Colgate University will celebrate its 202nd commencement this year.
Class of 2023 graduates will line up at 9:30 a.m.; gates/doors open at 9 a.m.; guests should be seated by 10:15 a.m.

Trumpeter, bandleader, and composer Wynton Marsalis, an icon of the jazz world with more than 110 recordings to his name, will deliver the commencement address.

The ceremony runs for approximately 2½ hours. There is no dress code. Attendees are encouraged to consider the weather and wear what is comfortable for them.

Severe Weather Location: The decision to move the ceremony indoors to Sanford Field House will be determined by 10 p.m. on Saturday and will be communicated via email to the campus community,, the Colgate Mobile App, and social media.

Alternate In-Person Location: The ceremony will also be broadcast into the Class of 1965 Arena (no ticket needed), for guests who are coming to Hamilton but prefer remaining indoors over the outdoor stadium location (and for spillover seating should the ceremony be moved to Sanford Field house due to inclement weather). The arena is wheelchair accessible and will open at 9:00 a.m. 

Livestream: We livestream the ceremony at for those unable to attend in person.
