Dear Columbia Lions, congratulations and welcome to Columbia! Columbia Global Centers | Beijing and Global China Connection - Columbia, a student-run organization for Chinese undergraduate students, invite you to a welcome reception for the Class of 2025 and families.

Please join us to meet with your fellow students and to learn more about the University and the Beijing Center. Current student, alumni, and parent representatives will also be in attendance to share with you their stories and experiences and to guide you on how to make the best of your time at Columbia and in New York City.
