Senior Wisdom: Ron Gejman

Name, school: Ron Gejman, CC

Claim to fame: Computer nerd extraordinaire! No, but really, I ran CULPA for the past couple years and revamped it a bit (remember what it used to look like?). I also designed the super-graphic—but ridiculously effective—posters that got put up all over campus during Ahmadinejad week.

Where are you going? I’m going to work in a lab for a year in NYC while I apply to MD-PhD programs. Wish me luck!

Three things you learned at Columbia:

  1. CU Housing doesn’t understand rules of grammar and consequently interprets its own rules incorrectly.
  2. The walk from Butler to EC at sunrise after finishing a paper is GLORIOUS.
  3. Reading week is the best time to work on all the important things you neglected all semester because you finally have something more important to neglect.

Justify your existence in 30 words or less: I got tickets to both Ahmadinejad and Obama-McCain. I was clearly placed on Earth for a reason.

Would you rather give up oral sex or cheese? You can take the lactase away from the man, but you can’t take the man away from his cheese.

Any advice for the Class of 2014?

  1. Make a group of close friends early on and stick with them all four years.
  2. Learn how to teach. Find a way to tutor, TA or lecture. You will not regret the time commitment and it will impact EVERY aspect of your life for the better.
  3. Make friends with seniors every year. They know what’s up and are a great source of advice.

Any regrets? Not sleeping on the roof of SIPA or ever participating in Holi.

    1. but... says:

      @but... dry, much?

      @yeah! AND HE LOVES HIS MOMMA!

    3. Anonymous says:

      @Anonymous “should be” ??? Ugh. What do you care? Would you rather a school where everyone was the same?

      I’m a senior and I don’t have a long term job lined up. I’m gonna work a few small things for a bit and try to do what I love. People like you, I think, are afraid of life.

    4. I'm says:

      @I'm just going to say it. I hate you. (Idiot troll, not Ron…Ron, you’re great).

    5. Honestly says:

      @Honestly Suck a Dick.

      You probably just need to live cathartically through senior wisdoms because your life is going nowhere.

      I hope whatever infarct you got that made you decide you were the absolute judge of valuable people kills you.

      1. Don't you mean says:

        @Don't you mean vicariously?
