Meet Our Students

From the Lions Mouth: 
My Columbia Day: 
  • Grab a quick lunch from Milano Market, which is conveniently located next to my dorm, McBain, and has a great selection of sandwiches and salads.

  • Head off to Fundamentals of Computer Systems, taught by Professor Martha Kim. This class demystifies the hardware behind computers, helping me better understand the building blocks of computational logic. 

  • Learn about the C programming language in Advanced Programming, a class taught by Professor Jae Lee. In this class I am learning how to think like a programmer and pulling back the curtain of abstraction around programming to see what being a computer scientist is really all about.

  • Have rehearsal with Uptown Vocal, Columbia’s premier jazz a cappella group. We not only perform our jazzy harmonies on Columbia’s campus, but we also are able to make the most of the jazz venues downtown as a benefit of living in New York City.

  • Go to practice with Columbia Bhangra, a competitive bhangra dance team, a style native to the Punjab region in India. With CU Bhangra I am able to travel to perform in competitions in Boston, Pittsburgh and elsewhere.

  • Grab some cookies at Cookies and Code with Application Development Initiative, a student group that has helped me grow as a programmer and developer. Cookies and Code is a great way for me to eat delicious treats, meet others who are passionate about development and design projects, and share some of my own ideas as well!
