Closed for the storm


Snowmageddon 2015 is making its way to Columbia University, and Alma is ready for it. However, the rest of us aren’t 10 feet tall and made of bronze. Thus, SIPA’s Office of Admissions and Financial Aid is closed at 3 p.m. on Monday, January 26, and all day on Tuesday, January 27. We  expect to resume normal operations on Wednesday, January 28.

Here’s a fun fact about Alma:  She was sculpted by Daniel Chester French, who’s famous for his statue of Abraham Lincoln at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. Alma Mater is also the subject of many Columbia legends, including that the first student in every new class to find the hidden owl on the statue will be the class valedictorian!

In the meantime, there’s plenty of stuff you can review on the Admissions Blog to help get your application into shape. For common application questions and tips, review these blog posts:
