Was a big fan of the sessions with concrete takeaways of what our institution can do better, especially as it relates to marketing and engagement.

This was my first GLS and it was so refreshing to be networking with peers who had similar goals in mind and were at the same place in leading their programs.

GLS has been a fantastic event! I was able to connect with so many of my peers and learn so much from all the insightful sessions. Will definitely be back for the next one.

Columbia University  is a private Ivy League research university in New York City. Established in 1754, Columbia is the oldest institution of higher education in New York and the fifth-oldest institution of higher learning in the United States. It has been ranked by numerous major education publications as among the top ten universities in the world.

Alfred Lerner Hall is the student center of Columbia University. Situated on the university’s historic Morningside Heights campus in New York City, the building, designed by deconstructivist architect Bernard Tschumi, then dean of Columbia’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation, opened in 1999.  The building attempts to both conform to its context of neoclassical buildings as well as break out of their mold.

Public Transportation

The BCEC is steps away from the MBTA’s Silver Line World Trade Center stop, which is the same subway line that services Logan Airport. It’s also a 15-minute walk from South Station, one of Boston’s major transportation hubs. South Station provides local services via bus, subway (Red Line), and the regional Commuter Rail, plus service across the country through Amtrak and bus.

LaGuardia Airport is the closest to the campus; a taxicab ride is about $30 (not including a 18% tip), and the M60 Select Bus Service goes directly from LaGuardia to the campus every half hour for $2.75 (change only). For visitors arriving at any area airport (including Newark International Airport), public transit is available to the Port Authority Bus Terminal (see paragraph above). Coach service and taxicabs are another option; for example, a taxi directly to campus from Kennedy Airport costs approximately $60 (not including a 18% tip).
