Senior wisdoms continue today with Carly, aka that girl you maybe know from Jewish summer camp.

Name, School, Major, Hometown: Carly, Barnard, English (Creative Writing & Theater Concentrations), Los Angeles

Claim to fame: I’m that girl who sort of looks like your friend from Jewish summer camp/I probably spilled coffee or tripped in front of you but kept smiling. I also give tours of Barnard and am the president of the most disorganized, but most marvelous, theater group on campus: NOMADS.

Where are you going? To Brooklyn!

What are 3 things you learned at Columbia and would like to share with the Class of 2019?

1. If you’re part of something that makes you feel shitty or think less of yourself (friend group, club, class), you’re allowed to back out. Eliminating bad vibes from your life doesn’t make you a quitter; it makes you smart, and ultimately happier and more successful.

2. Go to Furman or CPS. Free therapy sessions are a very hard thing to come by, especially in New York, and you get eight (or more) per semester here. Going to therapy doesn’t mean you’re crazy, it means you’re a person.

3. You are enough! You are enough! You are enough!

“Back in my day…” the 1 worked on the weekends and more people ate gluten.

Justify your existence in 30 words or fewer: I am a human cuddle.

What was your favorite class at Columbia? Well, my favorite classes have been at Barnard, and they involve anything with Pam Cobrin. She teaches crazy beautiful seminars about sex and theater, and she cares so much about her students it truly blows my mind. She’s just a true gem of a person, and people don’t talk about her enough.

Would you rather give up oral sex or cheese? I’ve never needed to fake it for cheese.

One thing to do before graduating: Write hand-written thank you notes to people that have helped you throughout your time here—from dining hall staff to advisors to librarians. Also, the Barnard librarians are amazing people and I highly recommend getting to know them before you graduate.

Any regrets? So many, but how could you not when you go to a school like this? There are just too many cool things to do. If anything, I wish I knew from the beginning that I simply wouldn’t be able to do everything, and that’s ok. That’s what DSpar taught me ;)
