Celebrate Your Graduate

We have an entire week of celebrations, ceremonies and special events planned to celebrate your graduating student’s remarkable accomplishments. We look forward to proudly marking this momentous occasion with you, your student, your family, and the entire Columbia community. 

More information will be available in the coming weeks — including details about tickets, health & safety requirements, and more. At this time, we anticipate that all guests will be required to follow University COVID-19 guidelines and policies and provide proof of vaccination.

Plan for your trip to NYC with our tips and links regarding traveling to campus, accommodations, campus accessibility, and dining & attractions. For ideas on how to celebrate your graduate, check out gifts and announcements, where you can view information on class rings, announcements, diploma frames, and more.
