  • This week, we're excited about a new opportunity -- exclusively for Columbia alumni -- to view Posing Modernity: The Black Model from Manet and Matisse to Today at the University's Wallach Art Gallery before its upcoming closing. Curator (and fellow alum) Denise Murrell '14GSAS will discuss her work on the exhibition. The talk will be followed by a wine reception. Tickets are very limited, so register today.

  • Marysol Castro '00JRN is blazing a trail for young women and people of color hoping to break into sports or broadcast journalism. Read her inspiring story.

  • Our friends at the Columbia College Alumni Association recently released their Winter 2018-19 edition of Columbia College Today. It features a profile of Nobel winner Richard Axel '67CC, a Spotlight on 13 standout young alumni, and more. Dive into the issue.

  • In celebration of National Mentoring Month, log into the CAA's January Networking Hour on January 28 for the chance to find a mentor in the alumni community, guide a fellow Columbian in your field, or simply make a valuable new connection in the new year. Secure your spot.

  • Are you wasting time at work? Find out what activities you can stop doing, according to career expert and member of the Columbia Career Coaches Network Caroline Ceniza Levine '93BC.
