The Jam is Back

THE JAM - the reunion of the Brothers and Sisters from the foundational classes at Columbia University - returns in June 2018 to New York City, Friday through Sunday, June 1, 2 and 3. 

Festivities will likely begin on Thursday, May 31st with activities in conjunction with Barnard College. 

Black alumni of all generations, from all Columbia schools and programs are invited to join in the events. Current students, particularly graduate and professional school students, are especially encouraged to participate.
