Senior Wisdom: Gabby Kloppers

The delightfully accented and secret Soundcloud-er Gabby Kloppers has some wisdom for y’all. Listen up!

Name, School, Major, Hometown: Gabrielle Kloppers, Columbia College, English and EALAC, Melbourne Australia.

Claim to fame: Complete ambiguity and relative anonymity. Don’t ask me about my secret Soundcloud identity.

Where are you going? Columbia Law School.

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

  • The value of sleep. I remember when the news came out that Columbia was the most sleep-deprived school in the country. That shouldn’t be a claim to fame. I have seen a direct correlation between my own performance, happiness, and sleep.
  • Explore your interests academically. Don’t do things because you “should,” just do things you actually think will let you grow as a student.
  • Basic human decency is really underrated. Say hi to people making your sandwiches, the security guards, and people you vaguely remember from Lit Hum first year.

“Back in my day…” We went to Cannons to dance and Hamilton Deli was open 24/7

Favorite Columbia controversy? The student who slept with Swae Lee.

Justify your existence in 30 words or fewer: I wrote my Senior Thesis on Fallout: New Vegas.

What was your favorite class at Columbia? Film & Law with the great Professor Julie S Peters. It made me think about the intersections of humanities and law, the two things that fascinate me most.

Would you rather give up oral sex or cheese? Sometimes you need some cheese on your Vegemite sandwich.

Whom would you like to thank? Alexandra Maces, my day one from ISOP to now.

One thing to do before graduating: Take out a bunch of old books from Butler and read them just for fun… I’m a nerd, but I will miss the absolutely crazy books we can get here for free. The book exchange here let me check out super obscure books, from Heksenprocessen in de Nederlanden to Microworlds by Stanislaw Lem.

Any regrets? My sophomore slump.
