Janine on the Academic Culture at Columbia

Janine is studying political science and human rights. Currently, she is taking Literature Humanities and University Writing, two classes that are requirements of Columbia's Core Curriculum. Overall, Janine finds the academic culture at Columbia to be very helpful with a mutual respect for academics among most students. However, she does mention the stress culture that seems to be pervasive throughout Columbia's academic culture. Yet, as Janine points out, there are many people and resources that can help students navigate this more negative aspect of academic culture.
