    STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

    BARNARD IS A REALLY PRETTY CAMPUS AND THE STUDENTS ARE WONDERFUL!

    Location and its part of an ivy. It's liberal arts so it is good for students deciding their major and just want to figure themselves out. It's a part of Colombia so Barnard students have access to all of Colombia as well. It's also a good school for girls.


    Course Curriculum - 

    I love the curriculum! We have so many options and opportunities to discover what we are really interested in. There are many chances to get into classes in Colombia as well. It's not a lot of tough work.
