The International Student Orientation Program is designed to help first-year international students in Columbia College (CC) and The Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS) comfortably transition into the Columbia University community before the New Student Orientation Program week.
The global ambassador program (GAP) is a year-long international friendship program that aims to foster intercultural dialogues among Columbia's diverse student body. The program matches students of different races, nationalities, classes, genders, sexual orientations, and class years. It provides a safer space for discussing topics such as culture shock, communication styles, intercultural conflict styles, social perceptions, and social (dis)comfort. GAP hosts monthly themed intercultural events and ambassador pairs meet up informally to engage in intercultural activities and discussions.
