It was wonderful to meet so many students as we traveled for the #CURoarTour! Our last COLUMBIA 101 is taking place July 5 in Mumbai. A few albums from our travel are available on the Student Affairs and the International Student Programs and Services Facebook pages and by clicking the images below.

Once you arrive on campus, there will be many other opportunities to gather and discuss life in the United States, in New York City, and, of course, life at Columbia.

Topics have included:

- What to do when staying on campus for break and the events (potluck dinners, museum tours, movie nights, etc.) that we offer during that time
- Re-adjustment to life with family and friends
- Staying in touch with Columbia and things you might not think would come up while away
- How to find your niche on campus
- Where to meet people
- How to ship and store items
- And more!

These events will be listed on the Columbia International Student Programs and Services website throughout the year.
