We close out 2020 with a sense of reflection and optimism. Over these last 10 months of lockdowns and isolation we’ve strived to continue the type of programming you’ve come to expect from CUCL. While we’re eager to see everyone again in person, we’ve been glad to see so many online.
Since March, we’ve hosted 28 online events including, our weekly Tea Times, book talks with authors, a series Mozart and the Lorenzo da Ponte Operas, a haunted tour of London for Halloween, and a virtual quiz night for Columbia Connects. While we’ve been kept apart, this has allowed us to invite alumni from around the UK and the world to join us.
Looking forward to 2021, we’ll be continuing our online programming until it’s 100% safe for us to meet in person. However, we know so many days (and evenings) are spent looking at screens we don’t want to contribute to the ongoing “Zoom Fatigue”.
To have a better understanding of what our members want for the upcoming year, we’ve created a short survey (details below). We’d be grateful if you could take a few minutes and let us know how we’re doing and what you’d like to program in the coming months.
In the meantime, we have a few items for you to pencil in—CAA France is hosting a discussion on the legacy of Ruth Bader Ginsburg '59LAW and our first event of the new year on mindfulness will be co-hosted with CAA Denmark.
We wish you and your loved ones a happy, healthy, and safe holiday season.
