Meet Our Students

From the Lions Mouth: 
“I like that the Core allows students to engage in ideas and perspectives that may not directly relate to each of their fields of study. Within the Core itself, I am constantly drawing connections between Art Humanities and Lit Humanities. Relationships like these allow me to see the interdisciplinary nature of all types of fields, which enriches my education and adds to my major.”
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.
