Nominate Seniors for OMA Recognition


The Office of Multicultural Affairs would like to recognize graduating seniors who have demonstrated an outstanding commitment to diversity, social justice, and multiculturalism through the OMA, campus leadership, community involvement, academic endeavors, and/or personal dedication. Honorees will receive a graduation cord to be worn during the various graduation ceremonies on campus.
Nominations forms are available online.

GSSC Elections


Student government is not simply the best way to engage in issues that affect your daily life on campus, it is also an excellent arena to hone and build important life skills. As a member of the General Studies Student Council, you learn to work in teams, find solutions to complex problems, and uncover hidden possibilities. 
In April, GSSC Elections will be held. Rise to the challenge of student leadership and reap all the rewards, from the satisfaction of contribution and the benefit of unique experiences to the pleasure of building new friendships. More information about the elections will be made available after Spring Break.
If you have any questions, please contact gsscelections@columbia.edu.
