2. Make sure that you have 'joined' the club website (this is not the same as paying annual membership dues)

Columbia Connects - Date change!

Due to valuable feedback we have received, we are changing the date of our opening networker/social to Monday, September 29th at 6:30pm. Same great location though - still at Taboo in Palm Beach. We hope this will allow even more of you to attend as there were some conflicts with the previous date. For those of you who have already signed up, if you cannot attend you can either request a refund or keep a credit with the club for a future event.  Thank you for engaging us. We are here to serve you, and will try hard to optimize our calendar of events to be as conflict-free as possible to make it easy for you to attend.

Website UP! Save the date for columbia connects!

We're happy to announce that the club website is UP and LIVE!  Please bookmark our site's home page for your convenience.

September 25th, 2014 is our first social networker of the 2014-2015 season (click to register) to be held in Palm Beach at Taboo restaurant on Worth Ave beginning at 6:30pm.    This has been a popular event and your club officers will be excited to catch up with returning club members and new members as well!   We're excited to see you all again!  Registration for the event is now open.

Just a brief reminder - if your membership is up (most club members unless you signed up/renewed your membership at the Polo Event or later) please head over to the membership renewal page and join again for this year

Finally, we have a short survey to see how the club can better serve you, its members.  Please take a moment or two to fill it out.



End August 2014 Update

Hello returning and new club members!

Our 2014-2015 Club calendar is being compiled, and we are readying this web site to offically go live!  If you were only able to attend one event last year, or you were thinking of attending an event but didn't make it, please look at our updated past events page to see what you missed!   We are planning to return to some old favorites again this year, and also some new ones!  

In the next few days/weeks, you should expect to hear from us letting you know that the website has gone live and you will receive a survey from us to help us understand you and better meet your needs!

If you are living in the Palm Beach area and you have not heard from us before, it is because we don't have your correct email!  To rectify this, send us a brief email at with your full name, class year and school affiliation, address and perhaps a phone number.  We will update our database and include you in future events.

Club members that are up for membership renewal should head over to our membership page and renew their membership for this upcoming academic year.  Remember, we are a dues-supported 501(c)(7) corporation!

Get ready for an exciting and entertaining year with your Columbia Club!  We're looking forward to seeing you soon!

Illuminating Our Future

Celebrating The Columbia Campaign and Our Future

The Columbia Campaign came to a close on December 31, 2013, and the University’s future is brighter than ever. In every area of study within the University and every pursuit in the common interest beyond it, Columbia and Columbians are moving forward with renewed energy. In scientific research, policy study, the professions, teaching, medical treatment, and more — we’re creating new knowledge, transmitting it to the next generation, and driving the future forward.

As new fields of knowledge emerge, the nation's universities are growing to pursue the expanding missions of teaching, research, public service, and patient care. With only a fraction of the space enjoyed by our leading peers across the country, Columbia has had to face an especially critical need for space in a dense urban environment.
