Welcome, New Students!
Congratulations on being admitted to the largest arts & media college in the country (and probably the world)! You're soon to join a huge, creative collective of talented students just like you that are what makes our community the eclectic, electric environment that will push you academically, creatively, and professionally to outdo your best and help you grow into the creative professional we're counting on you to be. Welcome to Columbia!
The next few months are sure to be exciting and busy ones for you as you finalize your college plans. We’ve created a number of opportunities to help you stay on track with your planning, get you connected with your fellow classmates (both online and in-person), and let you experience Columbia’s campus on a whole new level.
If you are attending an on-campus Orientation, your day will begin at 1104 S Wabash and from there you will explore our programs and our campus. Please arrive at 12pm if you are attending one of the transfer Orientation days (June 23-26) or 9am if you are attending one of the freshman Orientation days (July 7-10, 13-16, 20-23, 27-30). We look forward to seeing you!
