Where are you going? After Commencement, probably going to catch up on 4 years of lost sleep.

What are 3 things you learned at Columbia and would like to share with the Class of 2023?

1) Never go into Ferris around 11AM or 7PM.

2) Leave this campus as much as possible.

3) No matter what anyone tells you, Mudd is the worst building on this campus.

“Back in my day…” Carman had a roach problem, Cafe East wasn’t renovated, and we still had Cannon’s.

Favorite Columbia controversy? Managing to finesse 3-ply toilet paper out of the Administration has to be our best controversy.

Justify your existence in 30 words or fewer: If I weren’t here the Mechanical Engineering department wouldn’t have any black seniors to put in the newsletter.

What was your favorite class at Columbia? East Asian Civilizations: Tibet. Gray Tuttle is the GOAT, and we made a food blog for the final: atouchoftibet.wordpress.com.

Would you rather give up oral sex or cheese? Oral sex… am I supposed to stop eating lasagna?

Whom would you like to thank? Big shoutout to my Mom. No one drops positive Facebook posts about me like she does.

One thing to do before graduating: Before I graduate, I need one last Monday 6hew.

Any regrets? My only regret is eating as much Ferris pasta as I did.
