Dear seniors, friends of seniors, and friends who wish they were seniors:
It’s time for one of our greatest traditions to return: we’re starting our call for Senior Wisdoms. For freshpersons/transfers/people who hate joy, Senior Wisdoms are an annual feature where we ask outgoing seniors to share the knowledge and advice they’ve culled from their four years at Columbia. Responses are inevitably hilarious, slightly dangerous, extremely insightful, and generally awesome (not to mention a fantastic procrastinatory tool during finals weeks).
Here’s how it works:
- Nominate a graduating senior who you think is a fantastic human being and should have their wise words shared with the general public.
- Email email@example.com with (a) some basic information about your friend, and (b) why you think they should get a senior wisdom (think personal qualities rather than their résumé).
If they make the cut, we’ll get in touch with them while you sit back and bask in how funny/right about life your classmates are. A huge number of nominations come in each year, so move quickly—and give some great reasons for part (b)—to see your friends’ names up in lights! We’ll also be a little more selective this year; no pouting.
