Colgate University Loves Friday the 13th

“Friday the 13th” has long been known as a day of bad luck to the superstitious, but at Colgate University in Hamilton, NY, which was founded by “13 men with 13 dollars and 13 prayers,” it’s cause for celebration. To celebrate Colgate Day 2010, which is celebrated on every Friday the 13th, 13 members of the Colgate community, including President Jeffrey Herbst, were on hand to ring the closing bell at the New York Stock Exchange in New York City today.
