Take a virtual tour of SIPA

The School of International and Public Affairs is mainly housed in the International Affairs Building (IAB), which is located at 118th Street and Amsterdam Avenue on Columbia University’s main campus. The Office of Admissions offers tours of IAB in conjunction with its information sessions (you can learn more about both and register online here). But I know that students come to SIPA from all over the world, so I wanted to provide a virtual tour for applicants who can’t make it to campus. The following photos are mainly in IAB, but there are a few other common locations where you might find SIPA students thrown in as well.

I hope you enjoy the virtual tour! (Click on each image to enlarge.)
