While we keep double-checking the calendar to confirm that it's indeed July, the cool weather seems to be playing tricks on our summer plans (it even rained out our first attempt of the Hyde Park happy hour!). However, on the bright side, we're grateful to be spared from the extreme heat sweeping through southern Europe and the US.
August is just around the corner, and we've got not one, but two exciting events lined up!
First up, we have the honor of presenting a very special performance by none other than Tom Kitt, CC'96. With an impressive collection of awards, including the prestigious Tony®, Grammy, Emmy, and Pulitzer Prize, Tom is all set to make his highly anticipated London concert debut. But come early (6pm) for a private "talkback" session with him, where he'll unveil the secrets behind his creative process.
Next on our agenda is a fantastic send-off for the incoming undergrad and grad students heading to the Big Apple to embark on their academic journey. Join us near Waterloo Station at Passyunk Ave. and share your valuable insights and wisdom with these soon-to-be New Yorkers.
Lastly, we've received inquiries from alumni eager to connect with fellow members, both at our events and through email. Whether you're new to London and seeking alumni connections, looking for employment opportunities, or looking to hire talented individuals, we have just the solutions for you. Don't forget to join our LinkedIn Group (check you have Columbia listed on your profile for admission) or our dedicated Slack team, where you can engage with alumni for work, fun, or shared interests. To join the team, simply log into the website and follow this link HERE.
We can't wait to kick off the month of August with these incredible events. See you there, ready to make lasting memories!
