This fall you will join Columbia's community of scholars and artists. To help ensure that you are equipped with the knowledge and information you need to make the most of your time as a graduate student, we have designed an orientation program that will connect you to your faculty, your department and your peers.
At Orientation you will hear about the services and opportunities that are available on campus and through our networks in Chicago and beyond. Moreover, you'll be prepared to begin using those resources early and often, starting with your very first days on campus.
We believe that Orientation is the best way to begin your creative journey at Columbia, which is why the event is mandatory for all new students.
Orientation will be held at Stage Two in 618 S. Michigan Avenue, Chicago, IL 60605.
