Favorite memory from Barnard?
There are way too many good memories! My first campus visit, NSOP, first block party on Lehman Lawn, and my first time organizing a conference on campus… However one that sticks out right now is hanging out with my friends on Low Steps around midnight last May when some of my best friends are just about to graduate. We were singing, talking about how much we have changed since we came here, and dreaming about a 1920s car from Midnight in Paris picking us up.

Not getting enough sleep because I procrastinate a lot.
