October Events | Act Fast as Tickets Are Expected to Sell Fast

Normally, this is where we offer pleasantries and write about all the things we’ve been doing. But to be honest, we have so many great events coming up in the next few weeks we don’t have time to reminisce. 

To get started, we have Columbia Connects Homecoming on the 19th of October. We’ve also rescheduled the City of London Walking Tour for 2nd November. 

For anyone looking for an exclusive adventure, we still have spots open for a private tour of the V&A Museum in Dundee Scotland led by our own Maurizio Mucciola ‘07 GSAPP on the 9th of November. The tour will be followed by dinner in Edinburgh at The Doric for any local members who’d like to join. 

Finally, we’re thrilled to invite you to three amazing speaker events. First with fellow Columbian and the director of the Hayden Planetarium, and host of Cosmos and StarTalk, Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson ’92GSAS. Thanks to the generous support of Alan Howard (CC Parent '19 & '21), we’re following that up with Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony Award winning composer Andrew Lloyd Webber. And then for dessert (pun intended), legendary chef Heston Blumenthal who owns a series of Michelin-starred restaurants. 

Spots for all our events are limited, so book now to save missing out. 

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