Meet Our Students

From the Lions Mouth: 
“One of my favorite things about Columbia is that no matter the time of year, I will run into someone I know from school throughout the city. Morningside Heights is a fantastic place because it’s lively enough to enjoy but quiet enough to study and sleep. It’s a great base for exploring the rest of the subway because of the 1 train; at the end of the night after visiting a gallery in Chelsea or going to a concert in Brooklyn, you know that your little Columbian niche is just a subway ride away.”
My Columbia Day: 
  • 9:10 a.m.

    Discuss important works in conversational Spanish in Short Fiction in Latin American.

  • 11:00 a.m.

    Take a break by heading to Dodge Fitness for my Physical Education class, Strength Training.

  • 12:00 p.m.

    Grab some dumplings at Café 212 with the president of Project Sunshine, a national organization that tutors and befriends hospitalized children. I’m serving as treasurer this year.

  • 1:00 p.m.

    Meet with the other editors of Helvidius, the Journal of Politics and Society, to plan our upcoming issue. I’ve really enjoyed working with students from many different academic fields and interests to produce a journal that is truly unique.

  • 4:10 p.m.

    Go to my Romans and their Empire class before having a $5 burger in the 1950’s booths at Deluxe.

  • 7:00 p.m.

    Attend a production meeting with Columbia Television’s talk show, Sofa. I’ve had the opportunity to try my hand at television in a way no other internship could have allowed – I’ve hosted, edited, written and will serve as a producer this fall.
