Columbia at a Glance


Nobel Prize winners are Columbia alumni, faculty or former faculty. More Nobel Laureates have graduated from or taught at Columbia than any other University in the Ivy League.

From the Lion’s Mouth

“The Core has to be my favorite Columbia tradition. Even after my first year, it has opened up several conversations with complete strangers as well as other alumni. I was in an entirely new city, and ran into a Columbia College alumnus, and we talked about Frontiers of Science for a good half hour.”
