The Colgate Scene
November 2001


While we continue to seek comfort and ways to cope with the tragic events of September 11, the Colgate community has once again demonstrated the "Spirit that is Colgate." We are warmed by the many individual and collective efforts to channel feelings of anguish and loss into purposeful action. The following is a list of the current opportunities available to alumni, parents and friends who want to direct support to remember or assist the victims and their families.
