    Go into the city! One of the greatest parts of going to school in New York is that you have everything right at your fingertips. Take the subway downtown and explore! Go to the Bryant Park and Rockefeller Center and Georgetown Cupcakes! There's so much to do, and while it's not right on campus, it's pretty close.

    There are some events on campus, but if you don't like them one of the distinct advantages of attending college in New York City is that you have a myriad of things to do at your fingertips.

    The subway is literally right outside the gates of Barnard College. The limit is non existing. There are many on-campus and off-campus activities.

    Barnard is located right on Broadway- you are literally in the midst of New York City. As such, there are a million things to do for fun, on and off campus. Most people go off campus at least once every weekend. New York has fantastic restaurants and shopping, all of which is just a subway ride away. There are also great deals in the city for Barnard students. With your ID, you get free admission to a lot of museums like the Metropolitan. Also, the New York City Ballet, the NY Philharmonic, the Metropolitan Opera, and most Broadway shows have seriously discounted tickets for Barnard students. There are also a lot of concerts and clubs throughout the entire city to take advantage of. On campus, the frat scene isn't very big, but it does exist at Columbia. Also, the arts and cultural clubs often hold events, so there is always something going on if you want to stay at Barnard for the night.

    Out of everything, this probably varies the most. You have the entire city--which means bars, concerts, clubbing, foodie restaurants, anything you want. Campus activities and organizations also tend to get pretty involved and make the school seem smaller. Sororities and Frats are available if you're into those.
