Letter from the Editor

Spring is a time of hope, renewal and excitement. The Columbia College Alumni Association represents a diverse and dynamic group, and our members are proud to rally around Columbia College. We encourage you to remain connected through resources like Affinity magazine.

Go inside the Spring 2021 issue to meet Computer Science alumna Julia Collins ’14 and fellow classmates who are making an impact in the world, and find out how Linda Hayles ’11 motivates high-performing entrepreneurs to crush their business goals. You will also hear from Interim President Dr. David Russell as he shares his thoughts on the college’s future.

Members of the CCAA are invited to share their personal and professional updates for publication. Visit the alumni class notes webpage for more information.
