The Center for Career Education, in collaboration with the Columbia College Alumni Association, presents the Columbia College Dinner and Discussion Series, where select Columbia College students have the opportunity to interact with Columbia College alumni from different industries in a relaxed and informal atmosphere. This is an ideal setting for students to learn the workings of the industries they are interested in to advance their career exploration. Be sure to register early as space is extremely limited.
