  • I am a current student here

    -If you don't have a car, don't come here. -If you don't live within a 2 hour car ride, don't come here. Admissions makes it seem like it's a breeze getting to/from airports and the city- reality- cabs are a fortune (and super creepy because it's all the same dude with 7 different companies/phone numbers and an un-marked car) and getting anywhere is the biggest hassle!! -Vegetarians and vegans have it made.....meat eaters beware.

    Bard has a pretty high transfer rate due to that fact only a particular kind of person thrives here. People warned me that it's not for everyone and I did not understand that until I started college. Bard is very small and isolated and the students tend to be very liberal and eccentric. Prospective students should really research the school and visit the campus to make sure that they like it.

  • I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    As the cliche goes: college is what you make it. Imagining students partying all night, loud music, a huge focus on school spirit? Bard is not necessarily reminiscent of these images, however it is a college and acquires many students from different backgrounds. When considering colleges, it is important to know that Bard is not a regular college. It is a huge campus with a very intimate amount of students compared to other schools. The rigor is also respectable, but there is always help and assistance because the school is small. If you consider applying to Bard, do not become intimidated. The admission officers seem not to view an applicant only on their GPA's and board scores, but the student's holistic potential contribution to the school-talents and their promise.
