New Student Orientation Program (NSOP) is finally here! The NSOP committee and staff have been working all summer to prepare an amazing introduction to life at Columbia and New York City for you next week. Whether you are living on or off campus, all Transfer, Visiting, and Combined Plan (TVC) students need to check-in at the tent directly in front of Hamilton Hall to receive additional materials for NSOP week, such as the schedule book and their name badge. All week, if you need any assistance, please look for someone in a brightly colored t-shirt and they can help you out. We can’t wait to meet you!
