Ready to JumpStart your academic journey?

Choose Your Own Adventure to Jump Start your College Success

August 22-24,2022-  Morning or Afternoon

The week before fall semester begins, JumpStart will give students tools to aid their success for academic performance, social integration and emotional support so they can kick off the year ready to tackle college life! JumpStart Flyer (downloadable pdf)

JumpStart is creatively integrated with Math Jams, designed to help students brush up on math skills, meet their peers and learn resources.

The two programs, if taken together, will give student confidence to tackle math, English, and overall academic rigor. Students will learn how to work with a syllabus, how to manage the new technology expected of them, give them information on financial resources, and many other resources that Columbia has to offer.

Continental breakfast is provided in the morning, and lunch is free Monday-Wednesday from 12-1pm!
