As you get ready to arrive to Columbia, The Lion team has compiled various packing lists from current students for the most important things to bring to campus. It’s up to you to determine what to bring and what to buy later. During NSOP, Columbia operates a shuttle to Bed Bath & Beyond, so you can save on packing weight and just buy your supplies there.
And remember – you can always ask peers in your Class Facebook pages or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
And to make it even easier, a student from the Class of 2020 compiled our packing list into a Google Doc that you can categorize based on when and where you will buy your supplies.
