Senior Wisdom: Joshua Burton


Our last senior wisdom of the day comes from Joshua Burton: one of the few, the proud, the CCSC Sandwich Ambassadors.

Name, School, Major, Hometown: Joshua Burton. Columbia College. Political Science. Buffalo, NY

Claim to fame: The first ever Sandwich Ambassador. The one black guy in CU Dems. The person who willingly decided to run student council elections his senior spring. That person always seen with Will Essilfie.

Where are you going? Currently, Dallas, Texas. But ask me again in a week.

What are 3 things you learned at Columbia and would like to share with the Class of 2022?

1. Learn to trust yourself.

2. Even when you play yourself–it’s never your fault.

3. Act with the confidence of a man in salmon shorts.

“Back in my day…” Ham Del was still 24 hours, JJ’s closed at 8pm on the weekends, and everyone had to prove themselves on the ferris spiral stairwell of death.

Justify your existence in 30 words or fewer: Bad b*tches don’t have to justify what they already know.

What was your favorite class at Columbia? “Darwin” with Prof. Kathryn Tabb. Amazing professor, fascinating subject matter. If you have the chance to take this class with Prof. Tabb before you graduate–do it.

Would you rather give up oral sex or cheese? I wanted to say something about salty surprises, but this is NOT the forum…

Whom would you like to thank? My family, my friends, and my imaginary psychiatrist.

One thing to do before graduating: Be Prezbo’s next scandal.

Any Regrets? I read this as saying would I do anything differently? No.
