Senior Snapshot: Julia Wu

The Nine Ways of Knowing has decided to profile some of the amazing women of the class of 2013… and we’re so sad to see them leave!! If you’d like to be featured on the blog or know someone who should definitely be profiled, fill out our tip form or email us at

Name: Julia Wu
Hometown: Forest Hills, NYC
Major: French, minor in PoliSci

Guilty pleasure? getting an egg and cheese on a roll from HamDel at 3 am

Favorite memory from Barnard?
It’s a tossup between throwing a party themed “Bikinis and Bellinis” in my dorm where people actually wore bikinis and drank bellinis or spending a week in Paris with the small group of French majors feasting on foie gras, good wine and generally just kicking it hard with my thesis advisor. (Thank you Barnard French Department.)

Biggest regret of college?
Not getting to know more of the girls here better. There are so many wonderful people with insane stories, all you have to do is sit one down with a baked good or a snack and chat with them. For the ones that I do know and love, thank you for making my college experience that much more interesting.

Biggest leap of faith during college? Changing my major from Political Science to French.

What will you miss? The home away from home on the Upper West Side, the people.

What won’t you miss? Dilapidated furniture, dirty bathrooms and kitchens

Favorite place on or off campus? Lehman Lawn on a nice day

In 5 words or less, what’s next? lots of sleep, a job

Midnight breakfast or Orgo Night?
Midnight freakin’ breakfast. Because why would you want to listen to dumb jokes if you can eat bacon?

If you were a Morningside Heights bar which would you be? I’d rather not be a bar in Morningside Heights

Who will play you in the biopic of your life? definitely not Lucy Liu, although she is my hair idol.
