The biggest thing so far was Columbia Restaurant Week [in late January]; that was a lot of fun. We modeled it after New York Restaurant Week; we reached out to local restaurants and partnered with them to offer discounts for students who showed their ID. It worked out great! One night [during Restaurant Week] I was at Anār, which is one of my favorite restaurants, and I overheard some students talking about how much they appreciated that it was happening!
I really liked “Cognitive Neuroscience,” taught by Mariam Aly; that was super fun. As a neuroscience major, I’m interested in philosophical ideas of the brain in addition to scientific ideas, and she really touched on that.
I enjoy playing guitar and trying to make music. I’m also a huge cricket enthusiast — I’m always trying to find people on campus who are interested in cricket!
I’m from Washington Heights, so I have the ability to pretend to know all about New York. I like showing people my favorite spots. I especially love to show off Washington Heights — that area is so peaceful and calm, and a lot of people don’t go there, especially students.
