Senior Wisdom: Zach Levine

Zach Levine

Zach Levine

Name, Hometown, School, Major: Zach Levine, Fresno, California, CC, Anthropology

Claim to Fame? Columbia’s gayest salutatorian since George Stephanopoulos. Sarah Camiscoli’s daughter. Really-wrote a thesis that is pretend-entitled “The Gayest Miracle.” Pretend-wrote a real porno entitled “The Gayest Miracle.”

Columbia’s most confusing salutatorian.

Where are you going? New York. My parents aren’t paying for me to fly home to Fresno. Taking the year off to sleep (on, with). Someone please hire me!!! Anything but musical theater and finance. Afterwards, hopefully a joint JD-PhD in cultural anthro. Then POTUS. That is when I will publish my political memoir, “The Gayest Miracle.”

Three things you learned at Columbia:

  1. Everyone is gay.
  2. The Hartley Computer Lab is the single hottest place above hell.
  3. It’s amazing how much more visible you become to some people when you weigh 100 pounds less than you did the year before. Amazing is not the right word.

“Back in my day…” The Hartley Computer Lab was at room temperature. Something happened the summer after my first year that I am still trying to get my head around. In 2010 Alana Schwartz and I saw someone getting CAVA’d out of the lab.

Justify your existence in 30 words or less: I throw a monthly temper tantrum in the EC laundry room. Speaking of, I recently took someone’s Gap Body lady-panties on accident. If they’re yours, I am currently wearing them.

Is the War on Fun over? Who won? Any war stories? If there were moments I wasn’t having fun at Columbia, they didn’t happen because I wasn’t drinking a beer on a library roof somewhere. Go to Sunnyside and Prospect Heights and Inwood. Do your reading at Outpost Cafe in Clinton Hill. Get the red sonja at Mundo Café in Astoria and the green curry at Sripraphai in Woodside (Andrea Folds, Claudia Sosa, and BQ Quigley, you still owe me dates). Email me or Zehra Hashmi and we will send you a running list of Queens’ best vindaloo.

Would you rather give up anal sex or cheese? I changed the question. Answer is still cheese.

Advice for the class of 2016:

  •  If after two years you haven’t met the soulmate-friends some propaganda promised you, hold tight. It probably means you’re a more complex person than the kind NSOP wants you to be for their photoshoot.
  • “Interesting research is research on the conditions that make something interesting.” That’s a really unglamorous sentence. But figuring out why we come to be interested in the things we do is probably a more complicated and urgent task than mastering the things themselves. Spend your time here mining the source of your orientation to certain disciplines, areas of the world, friends, senses of humor, bodies, and sexual acts. The upshot is expanding your own world of possibility, loving things you once repulsed. I think that’s why the crying you do senior year is so much fuller than the crying you do your first year.
  • You may not love the Core. I do not love the Core. I liked two songs in Music Hum. One is on my pregaming playlist. I also never understood why or how a pedagogy can appeal to someone in the abstract.
  • Spend your summers doing uncomfortable, risky things, ideally abroad. Locate your intellectual and professional heroes and email them. Not their administrative assistants: them. Just a few months into my first year I sent a naïve but impassioned email to an anthropologist at Harvard I greatly respected, and it ended up landing me positions with Partners In Health for two summers, including one spent in Peru. Those summer experiences tell you a lot about what you don’t want to do, but what else can you be expected to learn as a 19-year-old?
  • From an email from my psychiatrist: “There’s something called the Holmes-Rahe Life Stress Inventory that tabulates the impact of significant life events, both good and bad, on health and well-being. If you look at it, you’ll see that ‘outstanding personal achievement’ is roughly as stressful as foreclosure.” We all, at one point or another, become acquainted — sometimes all too intimately — with how miserable an experience living and studying at Columbia can be. Two of our classmates took their lives during our time here. That fact deserves constant pause. We owe it to each other, but moreso ourselves, to be upfront about what pain and shame and unbelonging feel like at 4am on a Tuesday. Someone is always awake, but someone doesn’t always know to reach out. Share suffering. Full-stop.

Any regrets? Not appreciating myself for things besides my brain for so long. Not appreciating other people’s brains for so long. Never eating an M2M cheeseburger. I know I still have a few weeks left to do that, I’m just realistic about it not happening. Especially if it means having to give up anal.

  • thanks says:

    @thanks thanks for this, zach. i wish i could have met you during our time here.

    1. forgot to mention says:

      @forgot to mention that i’m glad you agree with me on this:

      everyone here is gay until proven straight. and because you can’t prove sexuality (it’s fluid, etc etc etc hey j-butz), everyone is just gay. and we like it that way!

      1. Confusing says:

        @Confusing If I’m expected to (and *do*) accept and respect your sexual orientation, inclinations, and preferences, why wouldn’t you accord me the same in return?

  • I've been says:

    @I've been Eyefucking him for two years now….

  • analysis says:

    @analysis I like to think of Senior Wisdom as a sort of genre – same questions, so there’s a very familiar format, through which the writer attempts to convey some sort of insight, with a very formulaic requirement for half-hearted (or worse, painfully whole-hearted) humor, attempts at earnestness, trite injunctions to “see the city” or “make friends” etc. I think this might be the maturation of the form that we’re witnessing here. The conventions are being stretched and played with in interesting, self-aware ways. A perfect example is the cheese question, which is often something of a set-piece for the larger senior wisdom: boring people give boring answers, clever people give clever answers, uptight people give uptight answers, and so on. Zach blows the convention apart, substituting the still more outrageous anal sex for oral, and then further inverts the usual trope, which is to fuss about for a bit and never render a real answer on the whole cheese question. Then he ties the anal sex joke in to his final regrets – consistency of theme! Meanwhile he’s expressing serious truths – the advice to the 2016ers is surely one of the best-phrased and genuine examples from the 2012 class, avoiding all the usual bromides – the NSOP photoshoot line in particular is gold. I just want to express my admiration for one of the real stars of our Senior class, convey my own personal regret that I didn’t take the opportunity I had to hang out with this kid, and finally note that analysis literally means “anal loosening” in Greek.

    @Anonymous has columbia ever had a black or hispanic affirmative action valedictorian or salutatorian?

    1. Anonymous says:

      @Anonymous no. hence “affirmative action.” the whole point is that they never would have been accepted here to begin with were that policy not in place.

    3. i DEMAND says:

      @i DEMAND that lee bollinger spend 30 million dollars hiring black valedictorians. they should be at least 13% of the total.

    4. they see me trollin says:

      @they see me trollin Affirmative action insinuates the recruitment weaker students since they aren’t competent enough to earn academic distinction on their own… so naturally, such studnets need a leg up. or at least that’s what the discriminatory practice of institutionalized racism aka affirmative action implies! so yes, it makes sense that when affirmative action students are matched up against their qualified peers, the former will be left in the dust.

      Consider the following analogy – Imagine giving our football team 49 free points for each and every game, to level the playing fields. Eventually, it’s pretty likely we’d make the playoffs because we’d finally be able to win a game.. Next, imagine suspending the policy of adding 49 points upon making the playoffs. Despite the fact that we ‘earned’ the distinction of a playoff seed, our truly skilled opponents will surely crush us when the equalizing ‘training wheels’ are removed.

      managed to insult minorities and athletes all in one post. new high score!!!

      1. Anonymous says:

        @Anonymous 1) Thank you for giving us a very simple, stupid analogy to explain a very complicated debate.

        2) You are a dick. Even if you think its ok and to belittle people’s achievements and offend them, its not. It may not hurt you because you have no experience with anything other than a privileged existence, but it does hurt people.

        3) Just so you realize, affirmative action isn’t just a “reparations for past injustices” or “leveling the playing field” thing (though these are not bad arguments). Its about making it so that there is no longer an underclass consisting largely of minorities. People tend to promote and mentor people who are similar to them; therefore, white people promote white people, black people promote black people. This creates a cycle of privilege that can only be broken by promoting some minorities to higher levels in our society, who will in turn be more likely help other minorities and raise an entire larger group of people. So even if you feel that you’re much more qualified than the minorities here (which you aren’t, because you’re stupid), there is more at stake here, and affirmative action is one of the best ways to lift minority communities out of their status as an economic underclass.

        4) I realize that you’re just “trolling,” and will probably claim that my reaction is just what you were looking for. But I wanted to respond to you seriously, because you are obnoxious and these are serious issues.

        1. Anon says:

          @Anon Your comment is foolish. The author was not denigrating affirmative action or anything about minorities per se. On the contrary, he precisely described how this process works – additional help in admissions, despite academics that are ON AVERAGE below that of “non-affirmative action” applicants – and this ultimately has an effect on certain institutions such as valedictorian or salutatorian.

          If you want to further work on mentoring etc, instead of just saying the guy is a bitch, you should question the idea itself of valedictorian. It is based purely on academics and extracurriculars, but at the highest level? Why should it not also carry an “affirmative action” component to it? I am not sure I actually agree with this, but _these_ are the relevant questions here. Just screaming “you don’t understand anything because of your live of privilege” is useless.

          1. Anonymous says:

            @Anonymous You’re completely wrong. Last I checked, college grades and high school grades are different, and the latter are not used in determining valedictorian. It may be slightly easier for minority students to get into Columbia, but it doesn’t mean they do worse here. Our valedictorian this year is a legacy, so perhaps you could assume that he did worse than the average Columbia admit in high school, but that didn’t stop him from doing incredibly well in college.

            In the OP’s analogy, the team that he compares white students to “will surely crush” the team he compares black students to once the “equalizing ‘training wheels’ are removed.” He or she may be right that minority students tend to do worse academically than white students (he also may be wrong, neither you nor I have the statistics). But to assume that because “ON AVERAGE” minority students do worse there could not be a black valedictorian is the kind of logic that is similar to people who assume that its okay to be afraid of black people walking down the street because “ON AVERAGE” they commit more street crimes. In other words, its the kind of thinking that I assume is “ON AVERAGE” below Columbia students.

            Also, my original response was not just screaming “you live a life of privilege.” It was explaining the social utility of affirmative action even if slightly less qualified black students are put in higher societal roles than slightly more qualified white students.

          2. Anonymous says:

            @Anonymous and putting this kind of thing on Bwog, where many minority students will see it and realize that there are people out there who assume that they are not qualified or intelligent enough to be here is nothing to be proud of. In fact, its something that the OP should feel shitty about.

          3. Devil's Advocate says:

            @Devil's Advocate Just saying… while it’s very true that many legacies do not deserve to get in, it is also true that the intelligence that led a legacy applicant’s parents/grandparents/etc. to get into Columbia and to be successful (because legacy isn’t much of a help if your family doesn’t donate) may be genetically passed on to their children.

    5. Anonymous says:

      @Anonymous Am I the only one that realizes that blacks and hispanics make up a substantially smaller percentage of the school than say caucasians or asians….and so the odds are then obviously less.

      1. Anonymous says:

        @Anonymous I can only up vote this comment and the one above about the difference between averages and individuals once. So I’m posting to express my desire to up vote them one hundred times each.

        And now that I’m writing already, here’s a tirade: How people continue to be stupid with their racism confounds me. The final nail in the coffin of the “no valedictorians of color” argument is the fact that “on average” white students are better prepared for Columbia than students of color (better schools, better access to tutelage, better connections to professors, great comfort level with approach professors and others in power, better chance of focusing on schoolwork and not being distracted with the need to WORK to pay for books and tuition and, ya know, food. . .). Privilege is a real thing folks. I think we should be busier celebrating the individuals who overcome such obstacles to achieve high academic honors (like Denise De Las Nueces, Salutatorian ’03, who I’m willing to bet is Latina), than trying to use the relatively low numbers of students who have overcome such institutional and societal barriers as evidence that the dumb black people stole spots from the smart white kids who went to prep school and were forced to attend Cornell or NYU or (gasp) Rutgers. Or better yet, let’s just briefly congratulate this very cool-seeming dude and get back to our finals, rather than writing racist comments (or long-winded counterarguments to racist comments).

        tl;dr: privilege is real. don’t hate, congratulate.

Like, it’s not acceptable to talk about great places you can find on the island (sooo pretentious), but if it’s “ethnic” and in the cool parts of Harlem or Queens (Brooklyn is passé) then it’s awesome.

    @Anonymous “If after two years you haven’t met the soulmate-friends some propaganda promised you, hold tight.

I constantly feel like time is just wasting away when I never make deep connections with people here at Columbia. I blame myself, I tell myself that people don’t find me interesting, I tell myself that my time to make close friends is almost up. Facebook especially has a way of making one feel like everything that other people have is missing from their own life. That’s why I thank you so much for this advice, it really made me feel better about my situation and more optimistic.

      I made my closest friends from Columbia during my final semester- funny how those things work…BUT stay strong and work on that confidence…outside of college finding interesting and trustworthy friends gets MUCH more difficult but you’ve just gotta keep going. Those things take a lot of time and nobody likes to solely be friends with his or her coworkers.

  • Anonymous says:

    @Anonymous Firstly the admissions process is so subjective…who do you consider “more deserving”? Someone who gets higher sat scores, does more voluntary work.
    Also speaking about getting a leg-up…if you want to consider advantages

    Is a student who gets a 2300 vs one who gets 2100 really more deserving of admission if the one that got 2300 could afford extra sat prep, tutors ..whereas the one that got 2100 couldn’t and had to take a job to support his family?

    Is a student who was able to go on trips to Africa over the summer to help out in orphanages, or volunteer in a lab more deserving than a student that couldn’t do any of the above because they couldn’t afford to?

    Is a student who can afford to pay expensive college admissions counsellor /have parents that can actually help them during the admissions process more deserving than students who have a clueless high school counsellor and can’t afford extra help?

    Is the admissions process giving preference to the rich?

    Affirmative action is definitely not a perfect process, and unfortunately there will be some people who will fall through the cracks. There will also be some people who will perhaps not have these opportunities but not be compensated for the disadvantages they experience (e.g. poor caucasian).

    1. Anonymous says:

      @Anonymous I agree with this argument on many levels, but you’re missing a key point.
      You seem to conflate being poor/from a low socioeconomic status with being a minority race. This is obviously not true. There are a lot of wealthy black/hispanic students here and a lot of dirt poor white kids. You do address this at the very end, but still, you seem to be directly talking about poor people, not minorities, those who affirmative action really does help.
      I met a (caucasian) girl who lived out of her car throughout her senior year of high school. Should she perhaps get the same affirmative action benefits as those who come from wealthy minority families?
