professor
Lynn E Mackenzie

Take Italian with Lynn! She's a great professor, and really knows her stuff. She's always available if you have a question, and is friendly and exuberant during class. I took her class every day, first thing in the morning and she somehow managed to keep me awake. Definitely one of the best professors I've ever had. She uses lots of pop-culture references and makes sure everyone is engaged. Easy class, and lots of fun. Definitely take Italian with Lynn.

If you don't get Lynn for either Italian I or II then your education has been a waste of time. Easily one of the most energetic-in-a-non-make-you-want-to-throw-up-way teachers that I've had thus far at Columbia. Plus Italian is basically Spanish which is basically English. Definitely one of your easier options.
