Preferred swim test stroke?
The “inch yourself along the lane separator floaties and never let go” stroke usually works pretty well, unless the lifeguard is like “stop doing that.”
What are three things you learned at Columbia?
1) If you loft your bed a little, you can have a fort underneath.
2) You can sneak alcohol into nearly any meal (eg, how about bringing some peppermint schnapps into John Jay to complement your hot chocolate?)
3) Don’t read bwog comments.
Justify your existence in 30 words or less.
I just found out that my class’s valedictorian is a guy who lived on my floor freshman year. Hooray Maxim!!
What was your favorite controversy in your time at Columbia?
The time someone poured a bunch of bottles of pee onto the John Jay 9 RA’s door. That was the most heinously disgusting thing that happened while I was here. I guess it wasn’t really a controversy, though, since no one supported the pee.
What Columbia memory best exemplifies your college experience?
Once someone put a condom on a flower on college walk and it stayed there for days.
Which prof do you think would be the best kisser?
Boh! Vlad Vintila, my intermediate Italian teacher. Ma certo!
What percentage of seniors do you think are virgins?
I think each senior is 35% virgin.
Would you rather permanently give up oral sex or cheese?
It depends – giving cheese or receiving cheese?
Days on Campus memory?
I unfortunately didn’t attend DOC, but here’s a funny story from freshman year: This guy on my floor moved into the room next to Mark Krotov on the first day of orientation and then never returned. Eventually we picked the lock and looked in his room and the only things there were a hat and a fan. I think he had another place downtown.
