Alumna Perspective - Carly Leff
Hi all. I know the decision-making process is tough, but you can all see the light at the end of this particular tunnel. I am not a techie and actually do not love blogs, so the fact that I signed up to write on the Barnard blog should demonstrate my real commitment and love for Barnard. I won't sit here and try to convince people to come to Barnard; rather, I will just tell you a few things that Barnard did for me:
I came in having no idea what career I should have, but through the wonderful, warm, patient and qualified people at the Barnard Office of Career Services I was able to get the internships and job that led me on my current career path of law.
I was constantly surrounded by bright teachers who really cared about my personal and professional development. I highly recommend finding a teacher you connect to and really making the effort to get to know each other.
Barnard was flexible in letting me combine my two majors (English and Anthropology) into one thesis that I truly enjoyed working on.
A feeling of comfort. In my three and a half years at Barnard, I not only met kind, smart women, but I also learned how to be comfortable in my own skin. Barnard is such a warm nurturing place that I cannot imagine anyone not benefitting from attending. Everyone from the cafeteria workers to the teachers to the students are so open and friendly.
I loved Barnard and know it would be a great fit for most, if not all, of you! Feel free to email me with any questions firstname.lastname@example.org.
