Campus Visit Notes for Barnard College


Visit Description:

Classrooms are dark, tiny, and reminiscent of HS. The buildings are small with cramped hallways -- some Nexus construction going on, nobody seems smiley friendly happy to be on campus. The school's overshadowed by Columbia. There's no COMMUNITY feel either. :[
