With the start of the fall semester, the Columbia School of Social Work welcomed a new class of 447 Master of Social Work students.

We are excited for the incoming class to start their journey at CSSW. To help them get off on the right foot, the School’s Communications Office created a short film that offers advice about campus life—from students the team spoke to just before they graduated.

You’ll hear recent graduates urge you to make the most of your time at CSSW—to speak up in class, to ask questions, to use the Writing Center, to attend programs and events, and to take classes at Columbia’s other schools.

But most of all, they say, form strong relationships with fellow students, professors, administrators, advisors, and field supervisors. As one graduate put it, “You can do the hardest work as long as you have a supportive team around you.”
