Summer Sendoffs

Celebrate Columbia Engineering's newest students this summer!

Columbia Engineering's newest students will soon partake in a tradition that you know well —congregating on Low Steps! See them off at your local Summer Sendoff event. These exciting gatherings of fellow alumni, incoming students and their families help the Class of 2028 feel welcome as they move to NYC and begin their Columbia Engineering Journey. 

As an alum, your unique stories, insights and advice (especially on tackling those late night problem sets!) will be invaluable to them as they prepare for their important years on campus.

Refreshments will be served. Space is limited, so please register early using the links below. Email [email protected] with any questions!
