In furtherance of such purposes, it shall encourage educational and recreational activities for its members; recruit candidates for admission to Columbia University, and generally promote and encourage communication and support between Columbia University and its alumni residents in the region. It shall serve in extending knowledge of the aims and achievements of Columbia University; promote the interest of all alumni and alumnae in the academic and extracurricular activities of Columbia, representing the interests of the University in the six-county region composed of Los Angeles, Orange, Ventura, Santa Barbara, Riverside, and San Bernardino Counties in the state of California.
