Talks @ Columbia is a new series of online presentations by thought leaders and researchers that make up the diverse faculty community at Columbia University. Through brief, engaging multimedia presentations these experts show how the ideas that matter most to them can resonate with us all.
Did you know that over 7,400 couples met and fell in love through Columbia? Some were hit by Cupid's arrow on the first day of class, and others connected later through the alumni network. We compiled our favorite Columbia love stories. Do you have your own Columbia love story to share? E-mail us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
