COLUMBIA 101 welcomes incoming students and families into the Columbia community and offers information about academics, life on campus, and networking before the New Student Orientation Program in August. As a Columbia College (CC) or Columbia Engineering (SEAS) alumnus, we would love to have you attend to welcome the class of 2018.
A key tradition of this program is the alumni book presentation. Each incoming CC student receives a copy of The Iliad, a book read by every College graduate since the early 1900's. Incoming SEAS students will receive Where Good Ideas Come From: The Natural History of Innovation, by Steven Johnson. Afterwards, alumni and students will have a chance to mingle, ask questions, and share stories. As an alumnus, we invite you to join us for this special event as we welcome our newest Columbians.
