Meet Our Students

From the Lions Mouth
“This year in Watt, my roommate will be a fellow Computer Science major. Our room décor will include multiple computer monitors filled with broken and functional code, computer science books on the shelves and floor and possibly cupcakes with the Linux penguin on them.”
My Columbia Day
  • Spend my morning  working in the Columbia IT lab, where I appreciate the opportunity to expand on some of my skills while providing a service to the university.

  • Review major centers of ancient society in The Rise of Civilization, an introductory course in the Antropology department.

  • Go to Introduction to Probability and Statistics with Professor Karl Sigman, who always challenges his students to think creatively and outside-the-box, as well as providing great conversation.

  • Go for a quick run in Riverside Park. Nothing helps me relax in between classes like a calm three or four miles here, with skyscrapers to the left and the Hudson River to my right.

  • Cook dinner in my floor’s kitchen using fresh produce from the Farmers’ Market on Broadway.

  • Meet with the Society of Women Engineers, where I serve as treasurer. It’s one of my most meaningful activities because it’s very inspiring to see women from all over Columbia coming together to enrich the Columbia engineering experinece. This past spring, we held an annual regional conference, which brought over 300 students and professionals to campus to showcase our engineering programs.
