Summer at GS

Summer at GS...Online!

Being part of the GS and Columbia communities is more than simply attending classes. It’s about being able to exchange ideas, connect with classmates, and participate in activities - this is what Columbia is offering via its dynamic, online environment this summer.

Current Summer Course Offerings

Peer Advisors Available via Zoom

Peer Advisors will continue to be available this summer to provide support to GS students through weekly virtual walk-ins, scheduled appointments, and by email. 

Student Life at GS

Student Life will be offering a full slate of online programming during the summer session, including leadership discussions and skills building workshops, multicultural and social justice discussions, opportunities to connect with staff and faculty, social identity based community spaces, study breaks and creative spaces.

In addition, Student Life in collaboration with the Dean of Students Office will be coordinating regular small group wellness discussions and working with student groups to support their online events throughout the summer.

Academic Resource Center Online

At the Academic Resource Center (ARC), we believe that academic support is an important and necessary part of any learning process. While distance learning continues, the ARC team has worked to transition our full suite of programs and services online, and we continue to be open through the summer semester.  

This summer, we are especially excited to be partnering with the School of Professional Studies to offer expanded access to summer academic support.

Support Groups

Columbia Health is offering a wide variety of over twenty virtual community forums and workshops including Cultivating Creativity and Resilience, Trans And Queer Community Care Support Space, Veterans in Transition, Body Positive Support Space, Coping with Trauma, While We Wait: Finding Comfort and Meaning In Our Present, and more.
