Here at the BlogDH, we want to highlight all the interesting things that the class of 2011 has been up to. To this end, we are starting a series, Last Call, featuring seniors reflecting on their experiences at Brown. Each featured senior will tag another senior for the next installment.
First up, Kai Huang!
People might know me as… an awkward dining hall conversationalist, as a writer and performer with WORD!, as a boy in love, as a former Minority Peer Counselor, as a hip hop head, as the founder of Brown’s dating and matchmaking website www.prospectandmeeting.com, as an angry Asian man, as arguably the best salad chopper in Jo’s history, and as a premed who takes his shoes off in the library despite not having showered for almost a week.
On a Friday night, you might find me… spacing out in my room thinking about the future, dozing off in the Friedman while working on next week’s assignments, or once in a while making a completely unexpected appearance at some kind of social gathering, mostly to fulfill an obligation to a friend and to observe the behavior of my fellow college students.
The best class/professor at Brown is… probably Stephen Smith’s PHP0070 Cost vs. Care: The Dilemma for American Medicine. Unfortunately, it’s no longer being offered! Please get politicized about health care inequality in other ways.
Three things I wish I knew freshmen year…
1) Break up with your high school partner.
2) Don’t do all your reading.
3) Does it seem like everyone here is infinitely smarter, more talented, and generally more capable than you are? In the immortal words of Chuck D and Flavor Flav, don’t believe the hype.
Ratty vs. V-Dub? Ratty, in the interest of variety. V-Dub tends to have the same entree for an entire week at a time, so if you don’t like it, you’re out of luck. Ratty is stacked. And if all else fails, fall back on chicken and pasta. However, don’t get confused: Friday at lunch, you already know. CFF ftw.
One thing I wish I had done? Make it rain in the Mezzanine (interpret as you will, and at your own risk).
After graduation, I plan to… conform to all stereotypes associated with my demographic and attend medical school. Where? I don’t know. My programmer from Prospect & Meeting is working for Google New York, so he’s pushing Columbia.
Next week: I’m tagging Amrin Khander, hijabi’d social butterfly and grand mistress of Brown Catering Prep, best known for pre-ordering Jay-Z’s “Decoded” and for suggesting my answer to #6 above. Question for Amrin: What is the best kept secret at Brown?
