Welcome to the Expo!

Almost exactly 100 years ago, Columbia University was home to a celebratory event similar to a World's Fair (on a much smaller scale). Though surviving records of the original event are sparse, the curators of The Forgotten Columbia Exposition have done their best to bring the past to life by fusing historical information with artistic invention. This site gives you access to a digital version of our full exhibit. You can also download instructions for a self-guided walking tour of campus (created by Roarin' Strolls™) to learn more about this missing piece of University history.
