From the Lions Mouth: 
“My favorite Columbia tradition is the Tree Lighting Ceremony. Not only is it beautiful to see the trees illuminated all winter, but there is something about the entire student body huddling on College Walk on a freezing night, drinking hot chocolate and eating cookies, listening to the Deans speak and watching our talented classmates perform that truly symbolizes the community we have on campus.”
My Columbia Day: 
  • 9:10 a.m.

    Start my day discussing two issues that are relevant to me in Human Rights and Public Health. In every class, we have vibrant debates about different aspects of the course.

  • 11:00 a.m.

    Discuss the legal system’s impact on the empowerment of various communities in sComparative Study of Constitutional Challenges Affecting African, Latino, and Asian American Communities, offered through the Center for the Study of Ethnicity and Race.

  • 1:00 p.m.

    Discuss biomedical ethics cases in Law, Science & Society with Professor Jonathan R. Cole.

  • 3:00 p.m.

    Take the afternoon to go to Central Park with friends to enjoy the weather, walk around Sheep Meadow and pick up some food at the Shake Shack (their burgers and concretes can’t be beat).

  • 8:00 p.m.

    Meet with the Student Organization of Latinos (SOL), where I serve as Vice President. We are planning our main event for the semester, “Nuestra America,” which showcases the food, music, and entertainment of an underepresented country.
