2023 New Student Send-off / New Alumni Welcome Event

Dear Alumni,

After four long years of COVID-19, CAA_Korea is excited to bring back and host the annual New Student Send-Off and New Alumni Welcome Event this June. This event is meant to welcome new alumni who graduated from Columbia University this past May 17th and have returned home to South Korea. At the same time, it is meant to celebrate new students who are leaving for the US soon to enroll at Columbia University this Fall. As a Columbia University senior, we hope that you can participate in the event, sharing your experiences with juniors in Part 1 (Orientation), and supporting and encouraging juniors over beer in Part 2 (After Party). We look forward to your participation!
