Undergraduate Student Life

International at Columbia

The International at Columbia series allows international students a chance to informally chat with their peers over tea and snacks from around the world about a range of topics related to life at Columbia and in the U.S. Upperclass students volunteer to share their Columbia experiences and offer advice.

Topics may include: academic, social and cultural adjustment, career considerations, important visa issues, networking, getting involved and meeting people, working with professors, taking advantage of New York City, planning for academic breaks, and more!

Please stay tuned for the Fall 2015 event!
