When you’re completely engrossed in conversation with your new floormates as you look out over the city lit up by a million lights … When you’re sitting next to an amazing alum at one of the frequent residence hall dinners … When you’re having hot chocolate with suitemates while you help them pick out Halloween costumes … When you bump into a professor you had last term who wants to know all about what you’re up to — at times like these you will suddenly realize that Columbia is more home than home base and the people around you are more family than just friends.
