ON THE COVER:
This specially commissioned cover was created for Barnard's 125th anniversary by London-based artist Gail Armstrong, who hand made a paper sculpture of Barnard's gates.
History professor Robert McCaughey chronicles Barnard's history, and is also a cochair of the Barnard125 steering committee.
Alumna Emma Wolfe is a key figure in New York Mayor Bill de Blasio's administration.
Barnard's writer-in-residence reflects on changes since she lived in Morningside Heights more than 30 years ago.
