What is orientation like for transfer and combined-plan students?

Transfer students will enjoy a number of transfer-specific academic and social programs, including brunches, student panels, advising sessions, and joint outings in the city with Barnard and Columbia transfer students. Your orientation group of 10-12 students will consist only of transfer, combined-plan, and visiting students. In addition, most social events during orientation are open to transfers, as well as first-year students. You will receive transfer orientation highlights in the packet sent to you in the summer.
