Senior Wisdom: Zoe Lubitz
Written by Bwog Staff
In honor of Orgo Night, Senior Wisdoms continue with the marching band’s flautist extraordinaire.
Name, school: Zoe Lubitz, Columbia College
Claim to fame: CUMB Flutist, COÖP Leader (yeahhh bikers), Flute Choir President, former JJ6-er who indeed still takes the elevator
Where are you going? Forward. You know those old people who say college was the best four years of their lives? I’d like this to be untrue.
Three things you learned at Columbia:
1. Explore campus! You’ll discover things like: Always go through SIPA to get between EC and Appletree/Vino Fino. The vending machines in the basement of Schermerhorn. The locations of the most reliable printers on campus (I’m still searching). The cookies at Brownies. The incredible tree to the right of the chapel on the way to EC.
2. Facial feedback. Google it. Basically the idea is that if you smile, you can trick your brain into feeling happiness.
3. It seems cool these days to say that Columbia has no school spirit. I’d advise some more time with the Marching Band. Always go to Orgo Night.
“Back in my day…” Back in my day, I used to see Jonathan Taylor Thomas all over campus. Sorry to you guys who missed out on the Simba jokes.
Justify your existence in 30 words or fewer: As a kid I was once on Sesame Street.
Is the War on Fun over? Who won? Any war stories? Well there was this one time at band camp…
Would you rather give up oral sex or cheese? Cheese never disappoints.
Advice for the class of 2015
-Butler may be open 24 hours a day, but this does in no way imply that you should ever choose the library over sleep. Not only is sleep healthier than not-sleep, it is fun. Also, I hear there are bed bugs in Butler these days.
-Take classes you’re passionate about with professors who can actually hold your attention. It’s easier to learn when the material is interesting to you.
-Everyone sitting behind you in lecture can see your computer screen. Thanks to this phenomenon, I know what you shop for on the internet, I know who you stalk on Facebook, and I know that you’re addicted to colorful flashing internet games. I’ll withhold judgment.
-Keep in touch with your high school friends. If you didn’t have friends in high school, make sure you find people here that really mean something to you. Don’t try to lone wolf this college thing or it will be distinctly less fun.
