Meet Columbia’s Veterans: Marine veteran and Columbia School of General Studies alum Jacob Serra grew up on 135th Street between Broadway and Riverside Drive. After leaving the Marine Corps, he attended Borough of Manhattan Community College and, from there, Columbia. Now a manager at Deloitte who gave this year’s commencement address at his high school, Serra credits his upbringing in Harlem with giving him confidence and values the opportunity to “live courageously” as a Marine.
