With graduation on the horizon, the Lion reached out to seniors to hear their thoughts. Here is what Lorenzo–a senior who is graduating from Columbia College with degrees in Political Science and African-American Studies–had to say.
What are you passionate about, and how has Columbia helped you find these passions?
Blackness & Black people. Columbia has helped link me to a balling ass group of Black students/professors that have helped me realize how important The Culture™ is to me.
If you could re-experience one thing you did during your time at Columbia, what would it be and why?
Fuego Friday because it was the greatest community building event to ever take place on Columbia’s campus.
What is your least favorite thing about humanity?
That we live amongst people that think it’s okay to blow their nose at the table.
If you were a Columbia library, which one would you be and why?
Teacher’s College because I’m lowkey but I’m lit af
What advice do you have for the incoming class?
Find your community. Find people and things that you love being around and be around them as much as you can. This sounds obvious, but being grounded in a community on campus is so helpful for keeping your sanity/sense of self.
