It’s been a busy summer as we prepare to invite all of our students back onto campus, and we’ve also been busy connecting with people like you during our virtual recruitment events.

If you’re interested, we have a full calendar of events here, and you can sign up for a Columbia SIPA information session here. We’ll be adding more over the weeks so keep checking back if these don’t work for your schedule.

I’ve found that the pros of attending a graduate school recruiting far is that you can connect one-on-one with admissions staff and alumni. Graduate school application processes can sometimes take a long time, and it advantages applicants to build a connection and then keep in touch as they figure out what they want to do, and when they want to do it.

But there’s also an advantage to attending sessions with other students, because they will ask questions you had not thought of that could be very beneficial to you.

Whatever you are thinking of doing, I encourage you to sign up a variety of events, listen, engage, and don’t be too overtaken by the process! Hope to see you all soon.
