Join fellow alumni, faculty, family and friends at Columbia Weekend on Friday, October 21 and Saturday, October 22!
The weekend kicks off on Friday at our Columbia Weekend Welcome Reception for alumni, parents and friends. This reception can be your first stop as you spend the evening exploring the Wabash Arts Corridor (WAC)—the South Loop’s “living urban canvas,” which includes 12 galleries and collections, 14 performance spaces, 200+ artists, music, media, theatre, dance, chalk art, pop-up experiences and more!
Saturday features a special President’s Luncheon, where you can “experience” Chicago neighborhoods through food and drink. Afterwards, continue the fun as alumni take over the A+D Fabrication Facility for our Alumni Social. The weekend concludes with the second annual Halloween Gathering on Chicago’s Cultural Mile—a “spirited” city-wide event. Unite with your fellow Columbia College Chicago community as we walk in the nighttime Halloween Parade.
Join us for one or all of these activities during Columbia Weekend!
