Your Weekly Low Down | February 23, 2018

Here's the latest from your Columbia alumni community:

UPCOMING EVENTS:

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: 

  • This week, Columbia announced an exciting dual BA program with Trinity College Dublin, which will allow undergraduate students to earn two degrees in four years from globally renowned universities on both sides of the pond.


  • In honor of Presidents Day this past Monday, we threw it back to this iconic shot of Dwight Eisenhower. Before becoming the 34th president of the United States, Eisenhower served as Columbia's 13th president. His tenure saw a number of developments at the University, including the founding of the Columbia Center for Oral History, as well as the Lamont Geological Observatory, now known as Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory.


  • Who are the 10 people you need to know? Columbia Career Coach Caroline Ceniza-Levine '93BC breaks down the types of connections you should have in your corner for career success.

  • On the podcast Why CBS, host Fahad Ahmed '17BUS talks to students, faculty, and alumni about their experiences before, during, and after Columbia Business School. Launched in the fall of 2017, it is the new and official podcast of the Business School, and Ahmed is getting set to launch its second season. He spoke with The Low Down about the project's beginnings and current success.
