Alumnae Weekend 2020: April 3-4: CANCELLED

On behalf of Columbia College, please accept our sincere apologies for the cancellation of Alumnae Weekend 2020. We're continuing to monitor the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) in South Carolina and across the country. This is a rapidly evolving situation and we want to do our part to respond to this emerging public health threat. 
As the COVID-19 outbreak evolves, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) strongly encourages event organizers to cancel or postpone gatherings that consist of 50 people or more, for the next eight weeks. It is our obligation to do what we can to slow the spread of the disease and protect the members of our community. Therefore, we are adhering to their recommendation.  
This decision was not made lightly and we understand that this may pose an inconvenience to you, but your safety is top priority. 
We will be in touch with you as we progress through this challenging time and hope to reschedule when public officials determine it is safe to do so.
