Students settle in to campus for start of spring semester after historic strike disrupted fall learning

Columbia students returned to campus this week for the start of the Spring 2024 semester. The picket lines were gone, and striking part-time faculty members were back in the classroom after the Columbia Faculty Union reached a deal with the college at the end of the fall semester to end the historic seven-week strike.

The Chronicle’s photojournalists went around campus to document the beginning of the semester.
