October News and Upcoming Events

We hope the crisp air and coloured backdrop of changing leaves are bringing about feelings of coziness. Each new season is an opportunity to remind ourselves to take peace in transitions. Autumn especially is a signal for us to let go, just like the leaves. 

If your time is now spent increasingly indoors like so many of us, we have a few events to contribute to the passing of an evening or two. While still virtual per the guidelines of Columbia University and CAA, we have a few new collaborations scheduled including Oktoberfest with CAA Germany, a Columbia Venture Community event, and an open invitation to a Columbia Alumni Leadership Experience event for interested volunteers. And join us this Halloween for a spooktacular virtual haunted tour through London. 👻 🎃 💀  Read on to register (if you dare)
