A Conversation with Donna MacPhee and Xavier Rolet KBE

We've made it to April meaning the nasty cold doldrums of winter are officially behind us (hopefully?). The sun is in the sky longer, the birds are chirping, and the flowers are starting to bloom.

Start the springtime with your fellow alumni at our first event of the season. We’re excited to be hosting Donna MacPhee '89CC with special guest Xavier Rolet KBE ‘84BUS on the 11th of April (details below).

We’re also planning a trip to Scotland for an exclusive tour of the new V&A Museum, a night at the theatre for a new work written and directed by two Columbia alumna, and fielding another team for the hotly contested US Alumni Quiz Night!

We’ve been so excited to see many new faces at our events in 2019! We’re very proud to have such a diverse and engaged community with membership over 4,000 alumni. We hope if you’ve not had a chance to get out yet, you’ll join us soon. We try to program for everyone.

Reach out at [email protected] if you need anything.

CUCL Mentorship — Mentors Needed

The Columbia University Club of London is looking for mentors... and we hope one of those mentors will be you!

Being a mentor means giving back to the Columbia community on your own terms and doesn't require any specific background or time commitments. All backgrounds are more than welcome—it's simply about being open to connecting with a fellow Columbia alum with similar interests, and potentially acting as a sounding board or sharing your own experience depending on your future mentees objectives. To participate, click here to sign-up with a 2 minute survey, specify your background and whether you're interested in a lighter-touch relationship (phone call, emails) or building a longer lasting relationship. We'll then be able to match you with a mentee that could benefit from your experience and shares similar objectives.
