“Here at Columbia, I learned for the first time how to reach out and grab opportunities. Our university has a tremendous wealth of resources and ways to get ahead, but none of them are going to fall into your lap. I don’t think any other atmosphere could have better prepared me for the real world.”

Faculty Members Awarded Guggenheim Fellowships

Guggenheim Seal
The John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation announced the 2012 Guggenheim Fellows in April, including eight Columbia professors.
“Columbia undergraduates aren't afraid to ask the big questions. They want to know 'why' as well as 'what.' And those are the kinds of questions that are best answered through discussion, so it's always a challenge being in a classroom with them. ”
“I get to believe in and live the fountain of youth 28 times every semester. Seeing the world as we saw it when we were in college is a fantasy for most people. Being a faculty member at a place like Columbia allows me to live that fantasy every day.”
