Were you one of the thousands of alumni who attended Reunion this year? The event brought together Columbians of all generations for dinners, campus tours, wine tasting and opportunities to relive the Core experience. From Dewitt Clinton Professor of History Eric Foner’s capacity-crowd campus talk on “The Emancipation of Abraham Lincoln” to nearly 1600 young alumni gathering on the U.S.S. Intrepid for dancing and mingling, there are as many different ways to experience Reunion as there are diverse alumni. Reunion provides a way to reconnect with old friends and relive great times at Columbia while creating new memories.
Below are photos from different events to give you a small taste of the Reunion experience; check out the CCAA Facebook page for the full albums:
