September News and Upcoming Events

We hope everyone is doing well, staying healthy, and enjoying the final throes of summer while socially distancing. 

With all our events currently taking place online, we took some time off these last weeks to allow people to spend more time outside and less time at the computer screen. But as everyone is heading back inside (begrudgingly) we’re working to fill the autumn months with some new events.

To get it started, we’re hosting Columbia Connects Quiz Night on September 24th. We hope to have some other EU clubs join us for a friendly evening of gamesmanship. Details below.

And back by popular demand, Tea Time Online is returning on Friday, September 18th. But to accommodate more schedules we’ll be hosting it from 6-7pm. This is open to all Columbia Alumni.  

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. 

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