Columbia University to hold first in-person orientation session with students August 20, 2021 August 20, 2021 admin

COLUMBIA, S.C. — The University of South Carolina will hold a first-in-person session with its students on Wednesday to get them acquainted with the new campus, a new administration said Thursday.

U.S. President Donald Trump has said he would not tolerate racism, xenophobia or other forms of bigotry in the United States.

But he has faced criticism for his remarks and his administration has struggled to find a cohesive response.UCLA is one of the few large institutions to have adopted an in- person orientation and the university says its goal is to help students get to know their fellow Americans.

It is the first of its kind in the nation, and it will be held at the university’s new campus at 2 p.m. local time (10 a.m., ET) on Wednesday.

The new campus was unveiled Wednesday in a ceremony attended by Trump, the president of South Korea, South Africa’s president, former presidents, business leaders and U.S.-born immigrants.

The ceremony was attended by several U.K. prime ministers, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, British Prime Minister Theresa May, and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
