Calling all Columbians!
Government Employees, Contractors and Consultants!

No matter where you stand, or what you seek, you are cordially invited to celebrate Columbia Alumni in Public Service with an Open Bar from 6pm to 7:30pm (selection of Canyon Road wines and drafts) at Pennsylvania 6.

Congregate, collaborate, communicate, commiserate, integrate, machinate, remonstrate but most of all celebrate with fellow classmates. Join us in fellowship for a convivial and joyful evening.
