Walk through Barnard’s gates onto tree-lined brick pathways, and the sounds of the city fade away. Here, the buildings buzz with the energy of more than 2,500 gifted, ambitious young women enjoying the challenges of a rigorous liberal arts education, the resources of a great university, and the lifelong friendships that come from living in a close-knit community.
"There is no one Barnard woman. Barnard students are so different and interesting, but at the core they are all smart, welcoming, and friendly. That was the type of environment I wanted to be in, and that weekend really showed me that side of Barnard. My best advice to those students considering Barnard, COME TO CAMPUS! Come talk to the students, and not just one, but everyone you come across! Hopefully, you will see what I saw when I stepped onto campus..."
- Angela Myers '18
To experience a bit of Barnard’s world for yourself, come for a visit. See how students interact and move through our campus and Columbia's campus across the street. Most importantly, listen to your gut. See what it says when you step through the gates.
Make sure to leave time to explore the unique Morningside Heights neighborhood. Often referred to as the "Academic Acropolis", Morningside Heights is anchored by Columbia University, with Teachers College, Manhattan School of Music, Union Theological Seminary, Bank Street College of Education, and The Jewish Theological Seminary all nearby. Historic Harlem, rich in culture and tradition, is only a few blocks north. Wander up and down Broadway, feel the laidback vibe of the neighborhood, and have lunch in one of our many neighborhood restaurants.
