Barnard’s mind-body approach provides resources and support to help you to thrive. Our Feel Well, Do Well programming is designed to help you relax and focus, whether that’s a community outing to the park or Wednesday Craft Nights.
Life on Campus
The Barnard campus is home to a close-knit community of independently minded, adventurous students. As part of the community, you’ll be empowered to help steer campus life. You’ll find a culture and resources that encourage self-care and compassion for one another. And a constant stream of lectures, workshops, concerts, recitals, plays, films, and other events will keep you busy.
Living on Campus
College is a big transition: It's normal to have questions. Our Res Life team is here to help.
Out to Lunch
“Diana is my favorite place to go for one very simple reason: smoothies. Yes, they have sushi and pizza and french fries. But their smoothies.... And you can use swipes for them!”
— Cassandra Clifford ’21
