The Students

Barnard's students are a diverse and interesting group.

 

They hail from nearly every U.S. state and more than 45 countries, explore 50 majors and 2,000 classes, and look at the world in their own brilliant ways. Meet some of these exceptional young women and hear about their lives in New York City: what they study, what they love to do, and what they hope to find.
