Campus

Columbia haikus from the class of 2018

Curious about the incoming class of pre-frosh? We were too. So let's quit the small talk---let's see how good they really are. And what better way to test how Columbia-ready you are than through the subtle, concise art of haiku.  If you're interested in learning more about these haiku authors, check back soon for full profiles of the class of 2018.

#swag.

Oh Columbia.
Though your essays made me cry,
I'm ready for you

---Isaac Jiffar, CC, Potomac, Md.

Never seen campus
Never visited the city
Still applied Early

---Shawn Wang, CC, Auburn, Ala.

A drop of BrillanCe
A wave of suCCess and thouGhtS
A SEA(S) of knowledge

---Angela Beam, BC, Boerne, Tex.

Those who took our challenge in stride:

I can't write Haiku
And I'm going to Barnard
..Nine Ways of Knowing?

---Franky Lin, BC, Hong Kong

I'm not creative
But I do love food and eating
So let's be friends please

---Anna Carlson, BC, St. Paul, Minn.

Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope
Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope
Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope

---Elizabeth Kwon, BC, Queens, N.Y.

The randoms:

Went bacchanal weekend
Thank god my mom did not go
Milkshakes at two a.m.

---anonymous, CC, from Lynwood, Calif.

Hey Girl, I hear your
Core is pretty rocking, and
it shows" --R. Gosling

---anonymous, CC, from Portland, Ore.

But then they got poetic:

Green sweeps white away,
Pink magnolia blossoms,
And life is renewed.

---Ada Tam, BC, Hong Kong

I didn't know where
I wanted to go at all
then I met Barnard.

at Barnard I feel
the world's possibilities
laid out at my feet.

my feet dance along
the dirty streets of New York
and I feel at home.

---Eve Kausch, BC, Ann Arbor, Mich.

Oh, the cheese:

Now my time has come
At last I will spread my wings
I have no limits

---Simisola Akinola, BC, Westbury, N.Y.

On 116th street
Lies the greatest place ever
Blue and white for life

---Alexander Birkel, CC, Princeton, N.J.

Alina from China sent us this proverb: "He who would climb a ladder must begin at the bottom." That is good advice when working around your home or looking for a job.
