Summer Vibes: Join us in Hyde Park on July 4th!


With summer officially here and the sun shining bright, it's time for us to come together and celebrate. Join us for an epic Independence Day Happy Hour in Hyde Park! We're not just inviting the incoming Columbia students from every school, but we've also extended the invite to our awesome friends from the US Alumni Club. Get ready for a truly incredible turnout. Make sure to register below!

In other exciting news, we eagerly anticipate the start of Baroness Minouche Shafik's tenure as the 20th president of Columbia University, beginning on July 1st. It's a bittersweet moment as we bid farewell to President Bollinger, but his remarkable contributions and unwavering support will always be cherished. Let's not forget, he played a key role in founding the Columbia Alumni Association (CAA) in 2005 (he's also a Law School grad, class of 1971). His visits to London left a lasting impression, like the unforgettable event at the Tate Modern in 2017, where he engaged with Claire Shipman '86CC, '94SIPA, and the fantastic conversation with Dean Jelani Cobb at the Lanesborough last November. President Bollinger's legacy will continue to inspire us as we move forward.

We anticipate creating more memories together with President Shafik—London is a special place to be a Columbia alumni.

Lastly, we have an exciting announcement to make about a very special event happening in August. Keep those eyes peeled on our social media and website because we'll be sharing all the details soon. Trust us, you won't want to miss out on this one! Tickets are expected to go quickly, so stay tuned!

Hope to see you soon.
