Columbia Weekend: October 12 - 13

Columbia Weekend Registration Has Closed

Hello Columbia Families,

Due to an overwhelming and enthusiastic response to Columbia Weekend, we have reached space capacity for all planned programming, so unfortunately, we have had to close registration. We regret any inconvenience this may cause.

However, there are still ways to spend time with your student on campus and in the city. Several events during “The Crawl” on Friday night are open and will be listed on the Columbia Weekend website Friday, October 5th. The Crawl is an opportunity to connect with students and faculty across departments, view student works in progress in our classrooms, and experience the pride we feel for our college. We also encourage you to enjoy the sights and sounds of the City of Chicago and our vibrant South Loop neighborhood.

Aside from The Crawl, if you would like to make any appointments with the College’s resource offices, we encourage you to make appointments with those departments directly and to please do so between 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. on regular business days.

Thank you for being part of the Columbia College Chicago community.
