As a Columbia Business School graduate you are also part of the Columbia Alumni Association (CAA), a collective of all University alumni. The CAA is another way to strengthen your bond with fellow Columbians of all University schools, worldwide, through online resources, intellectual opportunities, and discounts.
Alumni visiting Columbia’s Morningside Heights campus can stop by the Columbia Alumni Center to catch up on the latest University news, check e-mail, explore alumni benefits, peruse a yearbook, or just have a cup of coffee. The Center has been designed specifically for alumni use, and includes a lounge, library, seminar room, and courtesy office. It’s an ideal place to meet with fellow Columbians, or to enjoy a quiet moment while visiting campus.
The Alumni Center is located at 622 West 113 Street in Morningside Heights and can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org or 212-851-7398.
The University-wide Alumni Directory helps you stay connected with alumni from all Columbia schools.
All alumni are eligible for a wide range of financial products such as insurance (auto, home, and other), short-term medical insurance, the Columbia University MasterCard ® credit card from Bank of America and preferred CD and money-market deposit account rates.
The Columbia Alumni Association, in partnership with GovConnection, Inc., now offers Columbia alumni discounted computers (notebooks, desktops, and tablets) and peripherals. Part of each sale benefits the CAA, so you can give back while you upgrade.
Membership at the Dodge Physical Fitness Center, located on the Morningside Heights campus, gives alumni and their families access to Columbia’s pool, indoor track, squash courts, weight room, and other facilities.
Additionally, the newly renovated Bard Athletic Center at Columbia University Medical Center features a twenty-yard swimming pool, three squash courts, a gymnasium, an exercise room, Nautilus and Universal exercise equipment, dumbbell sets and benches, stationary bicycles, rowing machines, lockers, showers, and saunas.
All University alumni are welcome to audit courses through the School of Continuing Education. The auditing program provides adults not currently enrolled in college with the opportunity to attend selected lectures drawn from the University’s offerings in the arts and sciences during the academic year.
Alumni are able to attend a wide range of events from all schools of Columbia University. For more information on University-wide events, please visit the Columbia Alumni Association’s Alumni Events Listing or call the University's Office of Alumni Relations at 212-851-7830.
The Columbia Alumni Association sends out an electronic newsletter each month to all graduates of Columbia University and any graduates of affiliate schools which features current news about the University and updates on events.
The Columbia Alumni Association offers two free e-mail services for alumni: Web-based, hosted e-mail (e-mail with an inbox), and e-mail forwarding (an e-mail address that will forward messages to any e-mail inbox you choose). Both services require that you sign up with a UNI and password.
