CCYA Happy Hour at Sky Room

Columbia College Young Alumni is an active community within the greater Columbia College Alumni Association for alumni who are graduates from the last 10 classes.

Alumni are automatically members until 10 years after graduation. CCYA has two goals:

  • Building a rich network of connections and advisers for young alumni
  • Providing interesting and dynamic opportunities so young alumni can engage with fellow alumni, lead and leave a mark on Columbia College, its students and/or the community at large

Both goals create fun ways not only to stay involved with close friends and classmates but also to help young alumni impact other Columbians, including current students and older alumni.
