We’re hitting the road this fall

We know you’ve thought about applying to the Columbia University School of International and Public Affairs this year. Perhaps it was a fleeting thought; a whisper of an idea while you contemplated your future career goals. Or maybe you’ve been meticulously outlining your application essays since this summer. Wherever you fall on the spectrum, we’re happy to know that SIPA is somewhere on your radar because you’re on our radar as well.

We know you’re interested, and we understand that every applicant can’t stop by our office to talk about their options. Thus, we’re taking the Admissions Office on the road. Throughout the fall, you can find us at APSIA information sessions, Idealist graduate school fairs, coffee chat sessions, guest lecture luncheons, and Model United Nations events across the globe.
