Today’s first senior wisdom is brought to you by “famed biscuit bro” Isaac Bautista, who has taken some Ls but is here to share what he learned with you.
Name, School, Major, Hometown: Isaac Bautista, Columbia College, Astrophysics, El Paso, TX
Claim to fame: Watching football in Butler and an unnatural sleeping schedule. Famed biscuit bro of fall 2015. Took some Ls but ended up with a bae.
Where are you going? Back home to the greatest state in the Union – the land of of low taxes, high speed limits, and loose gun laws.
What are 3 things you learned at Columbia and would like to share with the Class of 2022?
1. Don’t get caught up in the rat race. While all your friends are trying to work for The Goldman Sachs, find something more interesting and fulfilling to do with your life. Or, do nothing. That’s ok too.
2. Kosovo is Serbia.
3. Explore the city. It’s easy to get trapped in the campus bubble. Go out and do cool things. You only have four years here and they’ll fly by before you know it.
“Back in my day…” Before the Great Meme War, classes with discussion sections were 3 credits like every other class.
Justify your existence in 30 words or fewer: I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Taxation is theft.
What was your favorite class at Columbia? Latin American Civilization II with Professor Jose Moya.
Whom would you like to thank? My parents, my sisters, my girlfriend, and my friends, who helped me get where I am, and without whomst’d’ve I would’ve gone crazy in this place.
One thing to do before graduating: Break into a roof somewhere and eat biscuits.
Any regrets: Not taking easy classes senior spring. Don’t be like me.
