New Columbian Orientation and Welcome Reception was held with success

On July 9, the Beijing Center co-hosted an orientation and welcome reception for newly-enrolled students in partnership with the Columbia University Chinese Students and Scholars Association (CUCSSA) and the Columbia Alumni Association of Beijing. CUCSSA representatives advised the new students on how to prepare for their arrival at Columbia, updated on campus news, and gave a quick primer on NYC and the area around campus. Some senior alumni also shared their insights on how to make the most out of life at Columbia, and the new students later met in groups with alumni mentors for in-depth discussions. One student remarked, “I am very grateful to you for organizing this event. The small group discussions with our alumni mentors helped answer many questions. And I was also able to make a lot of friends.”
