Networking at Barnard/Columbia is never ending. Plus, being in New York, students have access to so many opportunities that others do not. Barnard is well known by many Manhattan institutions, especially banks and investment firms like Goldman Sachs and HSBC and publications like the New York Times, Cosmopolitan, and Seventeen Magazine. Barnard has a very tight alumni network and alums are constantly supporting younger women.

I've had some professors I didn't like, but for the most part my academic experience at Barnard has been incredible and rewarding. I tend to like my Barnard professors more than my Columbia ones, usually because class sizes tend to be smaller and more student focused a Barnard. I've had great experiences on both sides of the street though!

Barnard is not your typical college. Given its location in Manhattan and its close relationship with Columbia University, the College does not fit the script of the 'small liberal arts school.' While Barnard could be considered small (c. 2500 students), it actually feels as large as the entire Columbia community; that is to say, huge. The academics are rigorous and the social life is sink or swim. Once you get used to it all, however, the possibilities are limitless. Once at Barnard, most students couldn't imagine going to college anywhere other than NYC, and appreciate with a new perspective how inspiring a group of ambitious women can be.
