Young Alums Meet at Columbia Club

Approximately 95 alumni, many from the Class of 2000, gathered at the Columbia Club on January 11 for the first Columbia College Young Alumni meeting of 2001.

More than 95 alumni gathered at the Columbia Club of New York on Thursday, January 11, for the first Columbia College Young Alumni general meeting - and first party - of 2001. Although the evening was primarily an opportunity to catch up with classmates, the participants (including a sizable contingent from the Class of 2000) heard Rita Pietropinto '93, CCYA president, and members of the CCYA executive committee discuss plans for the spring semester, which include not only more of CCYA's popular networking nights but also a Young Alumni Award ceremony scheduled for Friday, May 11th, and a dance party for all young alums to be held in the Hammerstein Ballroom in midtown on Friday, June 1.

Hamilton Associates President Abby Black-Elbaum '92 also reported on her group's efforts to increase young alumni participation in the Columbia College Fund.

CCYA, an organization of alumni who have graduated in the last 10 years, sponsors social events, networking nights and other programs that encourage connections among young alumni and between young alumni and the College. For more information on upcoming CCYA events, or for information on becoming involved in one of the CCYA committees, please visit the CCYA website (, e-mail or call Adlar García '95 in the Alumni Office at (212) 870-2786.
