Senior Wisdom: Adam Fasman

Adam Fasman CC ’19 gives you free advice.

Name, School, Major, Hometown: Adam Fasman, CC, Biology and Medicine, Literature and Society, Newton, MA

Claim to fame: I ran CUEMS (CAVA) for 2018. I also named the KCST Presents: Romeo and Juliet bake sales.

Where are you going? I’m going to Galicia, Spain on a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant Award.

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

  1. All assignments eventually pass, and when they’re finally gone it’s the best feeling in the world.
  2. Someone’s always having a messier day. Lend a hand.
  3. Nobody is going to thank you for doing your job. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do it well and be proud of it.

“Back in my day…” Shake shack was the burned husk of a mediocre chinese restaurant.

Favorite Columbia controversy? The “Clerkships Team” email thread: when everyone in the whole damn school was on a random email chain in summer 2018 and they all lost their minds. Fun fact: I had asked a professor for a letter of rec before that email happened and got no response, but I DID see them reply all to that thread!

Justify your existence in 30 words or fewer: I make a mean Tres Leches Bread Pudding. Nuff said.

What was your favorite class at Columbia? The Class of 2017 (Miss you Laura, Cristina and Elodia <3)

Would you rather give up oral sex or cheese? After careful consideration, I’d probably have to go with [ANSWER REDACTED FOR JOB SEARCH PURPOSES]

Whom would you like to thank? Too many people…My Sister, my parents, All of my Barnard Lesbians, the Bayit, the whole CUEMS Crew, Dr. O, Dr. B, Dr G, and Jennifer Finney Boylan

One thing to do before graduating: Commute primarily by Citi Bike for some period of time. Nothing will give you greater insight into New York life than trying to bike through midtown.

Any regrets? One semester I had a MW and a TR both at 11:40 and both on Hamilton 7. I climbed those stairs every day for a whole semester every dang morning. Schedule better, learn from my mistakes.
