Name, School: Kieron Cindric, CC ’08
Claim to fame:
Varsity Show, Xmas: A Secular Spectacular, various other musical productions; being naked on stage and dressing as cupid for Halloween
Starvation. That is, trying to earn money singing and dancing
Preferred swim test stroke?
Flipping above the water! (I passed through taking Diving as a gym course)
What are three things you learned at Columbia?
1. Though I love campus, and being on campus, Columbia isn’t really in “New York.”
2. Hewitt’s food is just better.
3. Bonobos are incredible creatures (thank you, Biodiversity!)
Justify your existence in 30 words or less.
Eating things like chocolate and various pumpkin-flavored things makes me happy; so do pop songs with good beats. Such simple things make me happy. Is that good? I don’t know…
What was your favorite controversy in your time at Columbia?
How about moment of controversy? I liked Ahmadinejad comments on the state of homosexuality in Iran. Maybe I’ll visit someday. Then they’ll have that “phenomenon.”
What Columbia memory best exemplifies your college experience?
A group of friends and I get together each week to watch Grey’s, and we all make food (or most make food), and we eat, and talk. One time, I think, we went from discussing how Meredith looked old to musing—very sincerely—on sexual orientation (non sequitur). I think it’s that variability and the mix of very smart but (often) very real people here that has made Columbia a great experience. I have made some great friends to whom I can relate on lots of levels—I’ll miss that and them (and the spontaneity of discussions)!
Which prof do you think would be the best kisser?
Possibly my Black Paris prof, Brent Edwards. He’s just super smooth. And cool.
What percentage of seniors do you think are virgins? 30%
Would you rather permanently give up oral sex or cheese?
Oral sex. Cheese is just too damn good.
Days on Campus memory?
Thinking that if Columbia were anything like Days on Campus, it would be sad—thank God it was so different!
None big enough to recall
