This page is dedicated to stories about Columbia's campus and community. From student, staff, and faculty profiles to interesting events happening on campus and in our surrounding neighborhoods, here is where you can find the latest about what's happening on and around Columbia's campuses.
To say the energy on Columbia's campuses these past few weeks has been electric would be an understatement. Starting in August, students began returning in droves for a mixture of orientation programs, ceremonies to celebrate their new chapters, and lively events meant to bring everyone together...not to mention classes, which officially started on Sept. 5!
From Convocation, to move-in and family goodbye, the New Student Orientation Program (NSOP) and ice cream trucks on College Walk, the fall semester is already in full gear and we can't wait to see what comes next.
