In a HerCampus article about the pros and cons of attending college in a city, Rachel Peck '12 is quoted. An excerpt:

"Columbia and Barnard offer the same unique experience, mixing the thriving city of New York with some of the limited green space the city has to offer.

“I enjoy a beautiful traditional campus… in the middle of Manhattan,” said Rachel Peck, a senior at Barnard and HC writer. “As much as I love NYC, I also love my campus neighborhood, libraries, Res Halls, bars, Greek houses, and green space.  I never felt like I had to completely give up 'the college experience' for four years in the most vibrant city in the world,” says Rachel."
