Pulitzer Prize-winning author Herman Wouk (CC1934) wrote about his time at Columbia: "The best things of the moment were outside the rectangle of Columbia; the best things of all human history and thought were inside. If only you had the sense, you could spend four years in an unforgettably exciting and improving alternation between two realms of magic. That doubled magic is lasting me a lifetime." From our campuses in Morningside Heights, Manhattanville, Washington Heights, and the Palisades, Columbia is interwoven in the vibrant tapestry of New York.
