Rendez-vous with Chicagoland Columbia University alumni, friends, and family outdoors and celebrate Chicago's re-opening with festive cheer and relish. Come watch competitive rowing within the 41st Annual Chicago Sprints Regatta in Lincoln Park and meet fellow alumni from all schools and friends. If you have never been to a regatta before, it is a total jamboree! Board members of the Columbia University Club of Chicago (CUCC) will serve hamburgers, hotdogs, and water/soft drinks. It is BYOB.
