1. Just because you got into Columbia doesn’t make you smart.

Is the War on Fun over? Who won? Any stories? The War on Fun has been going on since the beginning of time and will never actually end. That being said, I’ve only been a POW once. Last year, at the nth Fiddler on the Roof pit orchestra party, the party got broken up by an apologetic RA and the only person who got written up was sober. This was my one and only time in Carman.

Advice for the class of 2015: Visit all 5 boroughs. Know how to spell “borough.” Make friends with the security guards. They’re going to be dealing with your drunk asses for 4 years and if you get on their bad side, you’ll regret it. Find meaningful volunteer work off-campus. Join the marching band. Don’t drink vodkawine.
Any regrets? I stopped drinking vodkawine.
