Columbia College strives to build strong connections for its current and former students: connections to the College, to one another and to their communities, both on and off campus. The College fosters connections through residential life, student life, admissions, career and alumni programming, including alumni mentorship and internship programs, creating a vast network that spans from College Walk across the globe.
The Columbia College Alumni Association introduced its new logo this year. This new face is the result of a 14-month initiative that set out to redefine the CCAA’s role, domain and membership in a way that would be welcoming, inspiring and purposeful.
