Meet Our Students

From the Lions Mouth: 
“The Core Curriculum has been one of the most enriching experiences in my life. The classes themselves are fascinating, allowing students to delve into the literature, philosophy, art, music and scientific thought that have made modern Western civilization what it is. But for me, having a class of 20 students with leading professors to have deep discussions has really made an impact – I’ve reevaluated myself and how I look at the world.”
My Columbia Day:

    Examine the differences between short-run and long-run competition in Intermediate Microeconomics with Professor Susan Elmes.

    Meet with an advisor in the Center for Career Education to discuss my internship at Impact Carbon, where I researched the way that environmental organizations estimate the sustainability of forest resources.

    Challenge myself with Introduction to Computer Science in Java, where we’re learning how to program different types of algorithms.

    Meet with the Peer Health Exchange, an organization that teaches health workshops to teenagers. As co-coordinator, I manage the Columbia branch, which is the largest in the country. Last year, we taught workshops to over 1500 ninth-graders in New York City.

    Meet up for practice with the Columbia University Marching Band. We play at all Columbia football games, both home and away. It’s a great way to show Columbia spirit and have fun.
