My last class of the day is ARAB 452 (Imagining Palestine) with this wonderful group of people and scholar Hannah Sloan '18. We take a look at Palestinian literature and film in order to better understand the region and the on-going conflict. Very exciting stuff!!! #takeovertuesday 📸: Nikhil Arora '20

After class, I often get lunch with this squad, including fellow scholar Eric Zhu '20. The menu for today included 2 lamb gyros and one subway veggie sandwich, but Eric only ate the lamb. #takeovertuesday 📸: Nikhil Arora '20
