ABOUT: Join our talented faculty, staff, and your student, for a weekend of student performances, stunning art and meaningful social engagement on Columbia's campus. The weekend begins with our annual welcome-back event, The Wabash Arts Corridor (WAC) Crawl – a festival that celebrates the culture and creativity of not only Columbia, but the surrounding area. The WAC Crawl features gallery openings, concerts, dance and street performances, multimedia demonstrations, chalk art and more!
On Saturday morning, participate in dynamic intellectual discussions with faculty, experience your student’s academic journey through departmental presentations, and later, attend the Provost’s Reception! Don't miss this enjoyable opportunity for insightful discovery and engagement within your student’s Columbia community!
