Columbia University Family Orientation 2013
Sunday, August 25, 2013 at 8:00 AM - Friday, August 30, 2013 at 6:00 PM (EDT)
Columbia University welcomes the parents, families, friends, and guests of the Class of 2017! You are now a part of our community, and we have planned a series of events to help acquaint you with our vibrant campus. We believe that orienting you to the student experience and the many resources available at Columbia will enable you to contribute positively to your student’s success.
Family Orientation and Convocation take place on Monday, August 26, 2013, here in Morningside Heights.
During Family Orientation, you will have the chance to attend workshops to learn more about Columbia’s support services, share coffee or a meal with families from all across the country and all over the world, and participate in Convocation—a special event marking the official start of the Columbia academic experience.
Additional programming will be provided on Sunday, August 25, 2013, for families of students who are invited to move in a day early due to the distance between their primary residence and campus. Families of students participating in pre-orientation programs are also welcome to join us on Sunday.
For a schedule and more information, please visit the Family Orientation website.
We look forward to meeting you!
