Valentine’s Day approacheth! Today’s Columbians looking for love are Emma Stein, Joe Girton, and Schermerhorn Hall. If you want to take any one of these awesome humans/ buildings on a date, email us and we’ll set it up (and give you ten whole dollars to take ‘em out). If you don’t, we still think you deserve a shot at love. Fill out our short questionnaire and send a picture to firstname.lastname@example.org and the face to the right could be yours.

Guilty Pleasure Song: Either old school Britney (Lucky) or I’ll Make a Man Out of You from Mulan. Actually my entire running playlist could probably feature here.
Where can you usually be found on a Saturday night? On line: 1020, Kornet’s, Netflix — take your pick.

Your nightmare date in seven words or fewer: “I like to keep things simple.”
What redeems you as a
human being building? I’m complicated—enigmatic, even. Some say that my complexity makes me difficult, but I prefer to think of myself as a challenge—a challenge that takes multiple visits to truly understand. Do I contradict myself? Very well then I contradict myself. (I am large, I contain multitudes…of departments.) Prepare to get lost in me.
