EyePoke: Columbia Imports

 -Photo via The Eye Columbia imports a student from the army… …and a student who doesn’t want the ‘college experience.’ Going to college is probably not the best way to accomplish that.  TV has unrealistic characters? That’s not possible! Plus, we’re trying to bring in a linguistics program.
