From the Lions Mouth: 
“My favorite Columbia moment was receiving The Iliad during the summer advising session prior to arriving on campus. When the alumnus handed it to me, it felt like I was officially inducted into the Columbia experience, joining the rest of the alumni who have studied the exact same thing I was about to study. ”
My Columbia Day: 
  • 11:00 a.m.

    Nothing gets better than starting my day with an herb-encrusted chicken wrap at John Jay!

  • 1:10 p.m.

    Attend my Comparative Politics class. Today, we’re examining how countries transition to new democracies.

  • 2:40 p.m.

    Discuss how a movement becomes a cultural revolution on an identity in Zionism: A Cultural Perspective, offered through the Middle Eastern, South Asian and African Studies department.

  • 4:10 p.m.

    Attend Literature Humanities, where I love being pushed to a higher intellectual level. Our assigned readings become thorough, in-depth analyses that relate to today’s world and Professor Mercer helps us investigate themes that span not only literature but time periods and societies.

  • 6:00 p.m.

    Meet up with some members of the Columbia Political Review, where I’m a statistician and columnist. I like how it complements my major and allows me to look at current politics and relate it to my coursework.
