Congratulations! You have reached your final semester as an undergraduate at Columbia. As you scan these newsletters for the info you need for Class Day, Commencement, and all things senior specific, be sure to zero in on the Important Dates section in the right-hand column. Again, let us stress that:

If you read nothing else, check the UPCOMING EVENTS and IMPORTANT DATES sections of this newsletter. (See February 7.)

But we kept it all pretty short so you could scan the whole thing in under a minute. We know you are busy.

Now hang tight; you're nearly there.

Back to the Future Delorean Time Machine

If you miss these deadlines, you'll need to invent a flux capacitor. Doc Brown says, "This is what makes time travel possible."

2/7 Deadlines #FOMO

To be eligible to register to attend Commencement and request tickets for your guests online, you will need to apply for your degree OR let your CSA adviser know that you plan to participate in Class Day by Friday, February 7.

This is also 1) the date that family information will be pulled from SSOL for the mailing of invitations to the families of graduates and 2) the date your name will be pulled for the printed program given at Class Day. Please review your information, including the format of your name, by this time. Or 3) invent a time machine. Maybe. Time travel can be messy.
