Highlights for Prospective Students

The best way to find out is to plan a visit to campus. Take a campus tour, talk to current students and faculty members, sit in on a class, meet with a coach. See how students interact and move through the Barnard campus and the Columbia campus across the street. Explore the neighborhood and New York City. Most important, listen to your gut. See what it says when you step through the gates.

Ask a student!

When I Fell for Barnard

“I fell in love with Barnard during Admitted Students Weekend. I experienced the campus firsthand and met Barnard women who were articulate, confident, and intellectually curious. I wanted to be just like them.”
