Columbia College | Columbia Engineering


Columbia's New Student Orientation Program (NSOP) is your first opportunity to experience life at Columbia as a student! NSOP will help you to feel at home in Morningside Heights, become familiar with the academic and co-curricular opportunities, learn about campus traditions, understand how to access campus resources and support services, and meet the Columbia community.

NSOP, required for all new students, begins your transition to the excitement, opportunities, and rigor of campus life. It is the first step of many designed to help you acclimate. Specifically, the aim of the program is to:

  • Transition both academically and socially develop a sense of pride and school spirit
  • Welcome and introduce students to New York City
  • Gain an understanding of the  diverse, inclusive community at Columbia
