The Columbia College Annual Report for Fiscal Year 2012–2013 celebrates the strength of the Columbia College community. The report encompasses the entire Columbia College experience by sharing the year’s accomplishments, celebrating student, alumni and faculty member achievements, and saluting our donors’ generosity. The College experience follows an arc that begins with admission and travels through academics, student life, pre-professional experiences and study abroad, and culminates in alumni engagement and giving back. Highlighted within the report are stories about the ways that current and former students are learning, living, exploring and connecting. Our detailed PDF provides a full honor roll of our volunteers and donors. This report reflects on the different stages of a College student’s life — future, current and former — and reminds all members of the College family why Columbia College is the greatest college in the greatest university in the greatest city in the world.
