Here's what one student had to say about our Graduate Open House!
I wanted to express how impressed I was by the event's organization and each individual's level of commitment to the affair. Everyone involved was very well informed and enthusiastic about presenting Columbia as THE institution for advanced education and creative growth. That message certainly makes all the difference when choosing where to spend the next couple of years in pursuit of an advanced degree.
