From the Lions Mouth: 
“My favorite Columbia tradition is the Holi celebration organized by the Hindu Students Organization – everyone throws powdered paint at one another (to celebrate the vibrant colors of spring). It’s a fun way to spend an afternoon with hundreds of people and a great way to welcome spring to campus.”
My Columbia Day: 
  • 9:00 a.m.

    Prepare for my show on WBAR, Barnard’s College Radio, later in the evening.

  • 11:00 a.m.

    Attend Making and Breaking Codes, led by Dorian Goldfield. Learning cryptology from one of the scholars who basically pioneered modern code is awesome.

  • 2:40 p.m.

    Discuss some of Tony Kushner’s (CC ’78) works in Contemporary American Drama.

  • 4:00 p.m.

    Head over to Health Services to serve as an Advocate for the Gay Health Advocacy Project. I meet students from all across Columbia as a peer counselor, where I do HIV counseling and testing. People really respond to talking to peer, rather than a doctor.

  • 7:00 p.m.

    Grab dinner with friends at Max Soha – I love their Penne Siciliana.

  • 10:00 p.m.

    Meet with my fellow RAs to discuss our monthly projects. RAs are a really tight-knit community and we always work together to get to know residents and help them adjust to life as a student.
