I’m sure many of you are hard at work on your admissions applications, so I’m keeping it short and sweet today. Our fall tour schedule for SIPA’s building, known as the International Affairs Building (IAB), is now live. If you’re in the area, I recommend attending one as it’s a great way to get the pulse of the area when you don’t have time to join us for an information session or class visit. These tours are led by the admissions program assistants, so you’ll also have a chance to ask them questions about the program as you make your way through the halls. Sign up here.

If you prefer a campus-wide tour, groups of fewer than ten people are free to tour the Morningside campus on their own. Maps and other materials for self-guided tours are available online and in the Visitors Center, located in room 213 of Low Memorial Library (M-F, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.). No registration is required to pick up a self-guided tour, but a current Columbia I.D. is required to enter all buildings except Low Library. You are welcome to explore any of the outdoor green space on campus.
