Senior Wisdom: Orientation Edition
Written by Bwog Staff
Meet Michelle Diamond, CC’08. She’s the publisher of the Columbia Political Review and an East Campus RA, but you can call her Madam President of the Columbia College Student Council.
What is the best way freshmen can annoy you (the upperclassmen)?
By traveling in very large groups of people (think an entire Carman floor) around which it’s impossible to navigate.
What was your best freshman moment?
Wow, there is no way I can choose just one. The entire year was an absolute blast. Some of my best times were definitely spent with my floor (go Carman 9!).
Freshman year I fell down the steps of Low Library. I don’t know if it really counts as my worst moment (falling down the McBain steps sophomore year was worse), but it certainly wasn’t something I need to ever do again.
What is something every freshman should do while at Columbia?
Protest something…in a peaceful and respectful manner.
What 3 songs should the newbies load up their ipods with now (to better understand Columbia)?
On Broadway (bc it’s a classic)
(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life (bc you will)
Wonderful World – James Morrison (bc it’s awesome, despite having nothing to do with understanding Columbia).
What is the best thing to eat at John Jay?
