ImageColumbia University alumni gathered in Studio City for an end of the summer party this past September. With gourmet pizza and brew providing a little New York atmosphere and CUE Board Member Hersch Faber and his wife Davenie generously hosting at their beautiful home, this night proved to be an excellent networking event for CUE members and guests.

Many of the University's different schools and programs were represented at CUE's brainstorming and information session, including Columbia College (CC), Barnard College (BC), the Law School, the Business School, the School of the Arts, the Graduate School of Journalism (the J School), and the School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS). The open discussion benefited from a wide array of career perspectives, ranging from alumni who have worked in the entertainment industry for years to recent graduates just making their way to Los Angeles as well as the range of years from the seventies to the present.

There were some exciting ideas shared for future CUE efforts, as well as people ready to help make those ideas happen. Suggestions included starting a mentorship program, a networking lunch series, a fundraising awards dinner, panel discussions with established alumni and a writer’s group/screenplay staged reading event. Clearly there is a desire and need from alumni and new members are always welcome to contact the CUE board with their questions and comments.

As we moved into party mode, people had a great time seeing old friends and making new acquaintances. CUE proved to be a good draw for friends from fellow Ivies, as well as other networks of people working in entertainment. All in all - a great mix of people.

Thank you and kudos to the CUE Organizing Committee, CUAASC, and everyone who was there to make the evening a success.
