8:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Join Us at Summer Orientation

Get prepared for your academic journey ahead. During Summer Orientation & Registration (S.O.A.R), you'll become an official Columbia College student by registering for classes, learning about campus housing, and getting your college ID and campus mailbox information. Your parents are also encouraged to spend the day with us and can participate in special sessions tailored to them. An all-you-can-eat lunch buffet will be provided for you and up to two guests. 

Orientation also provides the unique opportunity to get to know your classmates as well as upper-class orientation leaders who will guide you on campus. If you're a transfer student, you'll receive important transfer information and have the opportunity to meet key campus administrators. Participating in orientation is the best way to explore your new home.
