Science tours are conducted by current Columbia College undergraduate scientists on Fridays and select Mondays from 12:05 p.m. to 12:45 p.m.
Following the tour, participants may choose to either stay for an optional 15 minute lab visit or return to the Visitors Center for the start of the 1:00 p.m. engineering tour (which will feature two lab visits). Science tours are designed for prospective students who are seriously considering scientific research academically. Highlights of the tour include faculty, facilities, research, and the student experience in the biological, natural, and physical sciences while also touching on Columbia’s legacy of scientific discovery. The Science Tour is intended to supplement, but not replace, the information session and general campus tour. Space is limited, and we regret that we are unable to accommodate walk-in requests.
