Congratulations on your admission to Columbia University!

On behalf of the Global Centers network, Columbia Global Centers|Beijing invites you to attend a Columbia-wide welcome event for all newly admitted students in Beijing and Shanghai.

This event will provide you with a unique opportunity to:

  • Connect with other admitted students from different schools, and make new friends before the school year begins;
  • Hear directly from current students and recent alumni as they share their experiences of campus life and career paths;
  • Learn about the academic resources and employment opportunities provided by the University and Columbia Global Centers to help you succeed.

This is a great opportunity to help you make the transition to life in New York and get your questions answered. We can't wait to see you!



The event will be broken up into three one-hour sessions to ensure appropriate health and safety distancing requirements. Students can register and attend any one of the three sessions.

Session 1: 3:00 - 4:00 PM

Session 2: 4:00 - 5:00 PM

Session 3: 5:00 - 6:00 PM


  • Please note that due to limited capacity, newly admitted undergraduate students are permitted only one non-student guest, and students entering graduate programs are not permitted guests.
