Photo by: Stephen Elms SoA'08

The calendar says it’s February. But anyone outdoors wouldn’t be held at fault thinking it’s June as the mercury hits 18ºc (64ºF) today. We hope you’re able to take advantage of the sunshine (as we’re sure it won’t last much longer).  

We still have tickets remaining for this tomorrow’s lecture with Columbia Professor Matthew McKelway on Nagasawa Rosetsu's painting of five hundred disciples of the Buddha (arhats) on a piece of paper approximately one-inch square.

We also have planned a Young Alumni Happy Hour, a CVC event, and an afternoon out for a viewing of the Ruth Bader Ginsburg biopic On The Basis Of SexAlso scroll down for a limited number of VIP Passes for the fifth edition of Photo London at the Somerset House—these will go quickly!

Make sure you book for our events on the website and be follow us on Facebook and Instagram for new announcements.

Please also keep in touch. Reach out at [email protected] if you need anything.

Upcoming CUCL Events for March:



Professor Matthew McKelway | Thursday February 28th, 18:30

Professor McKelway specializes in the history of Japanese painting and will be discussing Nagasawa Rosetsu's paiting of five hundred disciples of the Buddha (arhats) on a piece of paper approximately one-inch square.

Born into the family of a low-ranking samurai, Nagasawa Rosetsu (1754-1799) is renowned today as one of the most imaginative artists of early modern Japan.

CUCL is proud to host in partnership with the Japan Society.



On The Basis Of Sex Screening | Saturday March 2nd, 16:30

Set to be one of the year's most inspiring and entertaining films, this is the powerful and timely true story of US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg LAW’59 (Felicity Jones) who led the fight against gender discrimination and blazed an unprecedented trail for equality.

Join us for informal gathering to screen the film at Cineworld at The O2 followed by a bite nearby.

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.
