Keep Roaring with Columbia College Women!

Stay In Touch

You met some incredible women at the 30th Anniversary Symposium, so reach out to them, using the contact sheet that was provided in your takeaway tote. Stay in touch and continue to share ideas or support with one another. Contact us if you lost your list and also be sure to join our Columbia College Women Facebook Group.

Become a Mentor

A theme throughout the day was that when women support other women, we all benefit.  You can become a mentor or find a mentor or simply find a new person to connect with, though our online mentoring community, which allows you to communicate with fellow alumni or students for quick questions and insights, or to forge a more lasting mentoring relationship.

Please note we are planning a summer move to a new online community and our formal mentoring program will kick-off again in late August.

Attend Events

Columbia College Women offers events throughout the year that draw women together to learn and make new connections.  Two upcoming programs you can attend include:
