City College welcomed back students to the fall semester with great news -- CCNY is among the best institutions in the U.S. for undergraduates according to the Princeton Review's "Best 389 Colleges." Classes began on August 25th with an official welcome back celebration on Thursday, August 31st (pictures below among several other pictures from events that took place over the summer.

As we experience the beginning (the Alpha) of an new academic year, full of events and engaging speakers, we also must consider the end (the Omega) and wonder... who will speak at Commencement in the Spring?! The Chair of the Commencement speaker search committee has asked for your feedback. To learn more on how to submit a nomination for the 2024 CCNY Commencement speaker, please click here.

As you get back into your post-Labor day routines, please remember to check your Alumni Association membership--have you renewed? Remember that your membership and any additional donations are 100% tax deductible. Info on membership and where to donate below.

Also be sure to check out our fall line-up of events. The full list for September and the first few days of October is below, including a FREE screening of the 5 Demands documentary (about the CCNY campus student takeover in 1969), CCNY alumni night at the NY Giants on Oct 2, lectures, book launches, and more! And if it isn't already on your calendar, reserve Thurs., Nov. 9th for the Annual Alumni Gala! Invitations and event details will soon be hitting mailboxes.

Have a wonderful last few weeks of the official summer season. I look forward to seeing you at an event in the coming weeks!
