Circle of Contributors Lifetime Donors

[ Total lifetime gifts through january 31, 2009 ]

Permanently installed in the lobby of the Alexandroff Campus Center at 600 South Michigan Avenue, the Circle of Contributors display recognizes our friends and benefactors who have most generously supported the work of the college over their lifetimes. Their gifts have made a difference to the thousands of Columbia students whose lives have been enriched by the kindness of others—and will continue to do so as we add to our circle and widen our embrace.
