Columbia College recognizes the world as a dynamic, vibrant environment that requires our alumni to continually adapt, grow and innovate in order to succeed. Through career support and lifelong intellectual stimulation, our alumni have continuing opportunities to think deeply, refine their skills and sharpen their thinking. With faculty-led classes and tours, Mini-Core Classes at Reunion or throughout the year, and alumni expert lectures that reveal the wisdom of our former students, our alumni can learn for life.
