Information Session: Yes - Spoke about financial aid and the key components of admission that make you stand out in admissions besides grades with examples. Spoke about the student body and the diversity they seek. Well done.
Campus Tour: Yes - The campus is not huge and sprawling, but ironically it seems like an ideal size. There is more greenery than I expected in the middle of NYC, and the buildings and architecture were extraordinary.

Campus Visit Notes for Columbia University
Information session and then a tour. Hot day, but somehow the tour guides made it seem as if we were sitting in shade the entire time we were walking. VERY impressive athletics center. The varsity sports courts are off-campus and bus shuttles run players to those locations.
