Barnard College Visit Report by interruptingcow
Information Session: Yes - The information session followed the tour and was pretty short. The admissions officer briefly discussed info regarding the admissions process - basically what could be found on the website.
Campus Tour: Yes - Very helpful - my tour guide was a sophomore at Barnard and showed us around the dorms (an actual dorm room too), the library, and some classrooms. We did not see a class in session though.
Classroom Visit: No - We went inside an empty classroom, where the tour guide talked about classes in both Barnard and in Columbia.
Campus Visit Notes for Barnard College
If intimacy and a small campus is your thing, then Barnard may be perfect for you. However, this, as I realized after the tour, is not my style, so naturally my visit turned me away from Barnard. There's also construction, which makes the campus seem even smaller. Yet, the students there are so friendly and they seem happy at Barnard.
