First-year Families

This programming is not required for new families, but we hope you will join us virtually so we may introduce you to the people and resources with whom your student will work.

Pre-Orientation Programs

As the COVID-19 crisis and uncertainty around it continues, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Columbia Urban Experience (CUE) and the Columbia Outdoor Orientation Program (COÖP) and modify the International Student Orientation Program (ISOP) for Fall 2020.

For more details please visit the Pre-Orientation website.
