The ancient Romans called the hottest, most humid days of summer diēs caniculārēs or dog days. Perhaps as our reward for surviving them, London has now blessed us with brief rains and even some breezes.
On one of the warmest days in August, the Lions (pictured above) were out in force during the 1st Annual US Alumni Field Day in Wimbledon. A fiercely contested afternoon, CUCL placed 2nd after a nail biting round of flip cup to decide the winner (after crushing Georgetown in rounders, Harvard in volleyball and Stanford/Princeton in bocce).
Whilst the weather is still great, join us for outdoor volleyball on sandy courts with other Ivies, our next happy hour in the biergarten of a Hackney brewery, and a family friendly walking tour around the City of London.
We’ll plan enough indoor events in the coming months (including Columbia Connects and our annual Holiday Party; see below), so share the outdoors with CUCL this September. We even have a few spots left for CUCL’s version of Under the Tuscan Sun—an exclusive wine tasting weekend at the Poderi di Capo d’Uomo Estate.
Please also keep in touch. We’d love to get feedback on events you’ve attended, or the types of activities you’d like the club to plan. Reach out at [email protected]
Enjoy the Bank Holiday this Monday, and we'll see you soon!
