In addition to their day full of music, students also have the option of designing their schedule to include recreational activities in the afternoon. Students are encouraged to take advantage of the extensive athletic facilities of Colgate University; including the aerobics equipment in the modern Trudy Fitness Center and the indoor Olympic-sized swimming pool (lifeguard on duty during posted swimming hours)! Other popular activities include tennis, basketball, volleyball, racquetball, softball, and golf.
ALL activities are organized and supervised by the counseling staff.
Pizza parties are held in the dormitories following concerts. Movies and picnics are also offered, plus on occasion the students enjoy walks to a nearby old fashioned ice cream shop or the Colgate Bookstore in the quaint village of Hamilton. A summer highlight is a trip to Cooperstown, New York to enjoy the Glimmerglass Festival (music) or the Baseball Hall of Fame!
