Columbia has launched a new spring semester study abroad program in Istanbul, building upon existing relationships with Boğaziçi University and the Columbia Global Center in Turkey. The program is anchored by two seminars, taught by Columbia Professors Martha Howell and Karen Van Dyck, that address the question of how, from the Middle Ages to the present, westerners have interpreted and incorporated features of Greek culture in Istanbul.
Come learn more about studying abroad in Kyoto! Students on the program Take advanced coursework in Japanese language at the 3rd, 4th & 5th year levels plus courses in Japanese studies. Additionally, students participate in a Community Involvement Project (do volunteer work, join a student club, or study a Japanese art with a mentor) and live with a homestay family. Need-based Scholarships available and vary between $500-$5,000.
The Writing Center provides writing support to the entire Columbia community, from first-year undergraduates to faculty. In one-on-one consultations and workshops, our consultants offer feedback and strategies to help you improve at every stage of your writing, from brainstorming to final drafts.

Writing Center Schedule, Fall 2014
After this date students MAY NOT drop or change sections of their Core classes (Literature Humanities, Contemporary Civilization, African Civilizations, Art Humanities, Music Humanities, Frontiers of Science).
Students with questions and concerns should see their academic advisers. This Core Drop Date happens much earlier than the regular drop date, so it is imperative that students keep this deadline in mind as they work out their schedules.
The Department of Statistics seeks undergraduates to serve as graders or in help-rooms for undergraduate statistics courses. Candidates should drop off a transcript as soon as possible with Ms. Dood Kalicharan in the Department office, room 1005 SSW, MC 4690, 1255 Amsterdam Avenue.
Please label your submission Grader/help-room.
