    Student Activities fosters community and collaboration through engaging and thoughtful college-wide events and programming that reflects and defines our campus culture. As part of our process, we provide learning and mentorship opportunities that harness the individual creative talents of our staff, student team and the greater Columbia Community. Traditions like New Student Convocation, Wicked Week and Columbia’s annual Manifest Arts Festival. Student Activities also works with Columbia’s Student Programming Board (SPB), a team of students committed to planning, promoting, and producing campus-wide programs that create and foster the unique artistic community on Columbia’s campus. SPB enhances and unifies our community by working with other student organizations, faculty, staff, and alumni in coordinating unique events and activities.
