What were you like when you arrived at Columbia?

Uptight and intense but ready to fall in love with the Core Curriculum and living in NYC.

What do you remember about your first-year living situation?

Having a single in Furnald was exactly what it was cracked up to be: quiet and clean. Therefore, perfect.

What class do you most remember and why?

Lit Hum for the texts, the teacher and the first opportunity to appreciate the diverse genius of my classmates.

Did you have a favorite spot on campus, and what did you like about it?

The sixth floor of Butler library — an under-hyped gem with a killer view of College Walk.

What, if anything, about your College experience would you do over?

Exactly nothing.
