Thank you for your interest in the 2014 New Student Orientation Program (NSOP). NSOP 2014 will welcome over 2,400 new students and their families to Columbia and Barnard. The role of NSOP is to introduce students to each other and to all that the Columbia - Barnard community has to offer. But Orientation doesn't happen by itself - it's the product of the leadership and energy of over 300 Orientation Leaders, Crew Chiefs, and Committee members. The commitment and enthusiasm of NSOP staff is at the heart of the success. We are delighted that you are interested in playing a part in welcoming new students to Barnard and Columbia this fall.
