From the Lions Mouth: 
“My time here has been well balanced between technical engineering classes and humanities Core classes. It’s wonderful to work on a problem set and then take a break to read Crime and Punishment.”
My Columbia Day: 
  • Go to Quantitative Physiology with Professor Barclay Morrison. He is my favorite professor because he expects a lot from students and teaches in a concise and understandable way. I don’t think I’ve learned as much material in any other class.

  • Discuss electrical communication in my Introduction to Cellular Biology class.

  • Attend my Biomedical Engineering Lab, where we once observed the electro-neurophysiology of a cockroach. After you get used to the idea of dissecting one, it’s fascinating to observe its nervous system!

  • Attend a meeting of the Columbia Bartending Agency’s bartenders. I joined after my friends did and I’ve really loved not only learning about the art of mixology, but also building my teaching experiences. It’s an interactive way to pass along knowledge and skills.

  • Lead a meeting with the Columbia Community Outreach (CCO) committee, where I serve as a committee co-chair. CCO is a one day event that brings Columbia students into the community as volunteers. It is a great way for students to be exposed to the many ongoing volunteer opportunities that exist right outside of campus and to find some time (even just one day) to give back.

  • Go to a meeting of the Columbia Iranian Students Association. I am Iranian-American and very much pride myself in my culture. I got involved with CISA because I wanted to contribute to the club’s mission of spreading cultural awareness. I’m most proud of our Norooz Banquet, or Iranian New Year celebration.
