Share This Page

On Saturday, October 25, the Columbia Lions take on Dartmouth’s Big Green at Baker Athletics Complex. Join the Columbia College Alumni Association as we gather classmates, families and friends together to celebrate, at the pre-game Picnic under the Big Tent.

The picnic begins at 11:00 a.m. with a gourmet barbecue. Picnic tickets include an all-you-eat lunch, soft drinks and admittance to the Carnival, with beer, wine and cocktails available at the cash bar. Don’t miss the Homecoming Carnival, which features family-friendly activities that will put a smile on the faces of kids of all ages. Explore face-painting, balloon making, magic and interactive activities with prizes. Picnic tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for children under the age of 12, if purchased online by Friday, October 17.

Columbia College Young Alumni (Classes 2004–2014) will be tailgating under the Big Tent starting at 11:00 a.m. The first 75 young alumni to arrive at the tailgate will receive a complimentary game ticket and drink.
