September News and Upcoming Events

With summer in the rearview, we’re looking forward to an exciting autumn. 

To get things started, we’re getting together for some tennis this Saturday the 14th. All ages and levels welcome. And feel free to register with a friend. 

We’re also planning a happy hour, a historical walking tour (always one of our fall highlights), and Columbia Connects for Homecoming in October. And in November, a trip to Scotland. 

But stay tuned as there is more in the works. 

Keep an eye on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for more updates and the latest information on all our activities. 

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

Be an Ambassador:

Volunteers Needed; USA College Day | September 27-28

The US-UK Fulbright Commission will be hosting its 42nd USA College Day in central London, on Friday and Saturday, 27-28 September.

College Day is an exciting event with over 4,000 students and parents keen to learn about studying in the US! Our volunteers are a mix of Americans and Brits, including current students, recent graduates, and Fulbright scholars – all united by a passion for international exchange.

If you are interested in volunteering with the Columbia University team, please email [email protected] for more information.

Alumni Representative Committee (ARC):


The Alumni Representative Committee (ARC) is a network of Columbia College and Columbia Engineering alumni who support Undergraduate Admissions by interviewing applicants, representing Columbia at college fairs and hosting regional events for admitted students. ARC facilitates alumni meeting students around the world—in person and virtually—so that the students can learn about the unique Columbia experience from alumni who have experienced it firsthand.

City Ambassador

Do you live in Leeds, Glasgow, Liverpool, Birmingham, Manchester, or elsewhere outside the M25?

We are looking to support our members across Britain. If you’re an alumni living somewhere other than London, and would like to be your city’s Ambassador, please let us know. You’d be a point of contact for visiting alumni and help arrange the occasional happy hour for other local members.
