Most Helpful Review for Barnard College

Barnard college is one of the most unique college experiences that exist- partly because of it's location in NYC, partly because of the affiliation with Columbia, and partly because of its existence as a women's college. Being a part of Columbia is fantastic, but by also being part of a close knit liberal arts college, Barnard offers a much more supportive environment for it's students. Also, as a women's college, Barnard surrounds you with an amazing, driven group of extremely successful women- yet, because of the Columbia affiliation, you have the opportunity to have an entirely co-ed social...

    I am absolutely in love with Barnard. Barnard offers the best of both worlds, operating as a small liberal arts women's college yet offering students all of the resources available at the Ivy League Columbia University.

    Women's college in New York city dedicated to creating women leaders. A place that will inevitably change you, no matter who you are when you first arrive at the gates. A very unique college experience, and one I truly cherish.

    Barnard is the perfect mix between a great college experience, while also have the advantage of having NYC in the palm of your hand. Barnard is a welcoming community and a helpful one. Barnard women are strong, bold, and beautiful.

    Barnard College is an amazing college for women. It has the personal attention that we need along with dedicated faculty. We all get stressed a lot, though.

    Barnard is wonderful for a number of reasons, including its small class size and resulting individual attention. The campus is cozy but allows instant access to Manhattan culture, and both the academic and non-academic opportunities are amazing. Don't worry about the fact that it is an all girls school, there are plenty of boys right across the street at Columbia!

    Barnard may be away from the bustling NYC scene, it's nothing a subway ride won't fix. MoHi is a nice place to get a decent college education, although it tends to get a bit boring up here.

    Simply put, I love Barnard and truly almost everyone I know does as well. I have never felt more independent, challenged, or excited as I do living in New York City and taking classes at Columbia. And because of Barnard, I also feel empowered as a woman.
