LA Holiday Party

Los Angeles Alumni Pre-Game the Holidays Party - November 19, 2015.

In LA, we don’t wait for December to kick off the holiday party season! On November 19th, CAAN LA pre-gamed the holidays at the lovely Riviera 31 in the Sofitel Hotel.   


With 15 schools and hundreds of guests, Columbia College Chicago alumni were there en masse to represent our alma mater. Howard Seth Cohen (BA ’98) and Jennifer Oliver O’Connell (BA ’87), representatives from the CAAN National Board, warmly greeted each of our alums as they all shared cocktails together in the lounge and on the outdoor patio.


Alumni who have lived in LA for over 20 years as well as alumni who just moved to LA less than 3 weeks ago were able to deepen their networks. Our Columbia-branded nametags made it easy to spot fellow alumni in order to make those all-important connections. Whether they arrived at the event solo or in a group, all alumni left knowing a host of new names and faces in the industry.
