Your 2014 NSOP Committee

Community Begins Now!

Meet the New Student Orientation Program (NSOP) Committee!

These students are helping us plan NSOP 2014 programming to welcome you and more than 2,500 other new students from Columbia College, the School of Engineering and Applied Science, the School of General Studies, and Barnard to campus this fall.

NSOP will help you to feel at home in Morningside Heights, become familiar with Columbia's academic and cocurricular opportunities, learn about campus traditions, understand how to access campus resources and support services, and meet the Columbia community.
