Undergraduate Recruitment Committee
The Undergraduate Recruitment Committee (URC) is a subunit of the Office of Undergraduate Admissions for students who are interested in being part of the recruitment effort for Columbia Admissions. The largest part of being a member of the URC is being a campus tour guide, leading a weekly tour of prospective students, families, and visitors around campus and explaining the history and culture of Columbia.
The URC consists of an Advisory Board, which is made up of roughly fifteen upperclassmen who help administer the varying programs put on by the URC, and the general body, which is made up of over 150 active tour guides.
