Inside Story: A 700-Foot-Long Sandwich Takes Over the Campus

Food for Thought: Dining at Barnard

Kosher, halal, vegan — Barnard’s dining program caters to you with flexible meal plans and everything from salad and cookies at Hewitt Dining Hall to a Peet’s Coffee café.


A League of Their Own

Barnard’s scholar-athletes compete alongside their Columbia peers in the prestigious NCAA Division I, with access to top coaches and facilities.

I realized that this was an opportunity of a lifetime; I opened my heart and mind to the most interesting and diverse group of women that I would ever come across.

Join the Club

Barnard’s 80-plus student clubs — with more across the street at Columbia — shape close friendships through shared passions. They range from a capella groups and pre-law societies to literary magazines and climate action organizations.

I arrived on campus and instantly met so many upperclass students who were willing to reach out. I do a lot of performing arts, and the moment I mentioned that, any student who did performing arts was like, ‘These are the clubs, this is how you get involved!’
