Columbia Connects Quiz and Giving Day Update

We are halfway through autumn. The mercury is dropping along with all the leaves. The days are gradually becoming shorter. And as the country navigates its second lockdown, we know this is going to be an unusual season. 

To help fight off the doldrums we are replaying our Columbia Connects quiz next Saturday, 21st of November at 4pm GMT (details below). We’re opening this up to all Columbia alumni, so please invite your friends from around the world. This event is online but fully interactive with a leaderboard to help keep score (and get the competitive juices flowing). 

We are also working on a few other events to close out the year, so stay tuned. 

As we aim to limit our email newsletter to once a month, please make sure you’re connected on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and our growing members only Slack community for updates and the latest information on all our activities.

Lastly, for anyone curious on the latest regarding the University’s policies, guidelines and actions in regard to Covid, please visit:

Do reach out at [email protected] if you need anything.
