Dear Columbia Students from affected counties in Alabama and across the Southeast,

The Columbia community is thinking of those of you with family and friends who may have been affected by the catastrophic tornadoes across parts of Alabama and the Southeast yesterday.  

Several on-campus resources are available for support during this difficult time. In addition to your individual school deans of students, these University-wide resources are available:

Morningside Campus: Counseling and Psychological Services

Medical Center Campus: Mental Health Services

The Office of the University Chaplain also offers faith-based support and spiritual counseling and can be reached by phone at 212-854-1493 or online.

If you have questions or aren't sure where to turn, the Office of University Life also is here to help. Call 212-853-1628 or write to
