In installment #2 of students getting honest, Ellie Harrison, Colette Juran, Phanesia Pharel, and Agie Neneh Sissoho unveil what their second year at Barnard was like, after each semester wrapped. 

Every year, Barnard faculty lead students on trips outside New York City—often outside the United States—to conduct research, perform, and expand teaching and learning opportunities.

Over the past decade, the Barnard curriculum has expanded its global influence by increasing opportunities for faculty and students to gain educational, work, and volunteer experience.
