The NSOP Student Chair works with students on the NSOP Committee from Barnard College, Columbia College, and The Fu Foundation School of Engineering & Applied Sciences on planning large-scale events for the new incoming Fall 2019 class. NSOP 2019 will welcome more than 3,500 new students and their families to Columbia and Barnard, and introduce them to each other and to all that the Columbia community has to offer.
