Why did you choose to work at Barnard?
I chose to work at Barnard because of how much I valued all of the opportunities and experiences I had here as a student. At Barnard, I was able to take classes in subjects I never thought I would explore parts of New York I never would’ve heard of, and pursue leadership opportunities on and off campus. Coming back to Barnard as an alum is so great because I’m able to be a part of helping prospective students in their journeys.
