Hello There

So right now I am in my favorite building on campus called Diana Center. And this is my favorite building because they have the best food and the best study rooms. So sometimes during midterms are finals or whatever. I come here at like, noon and literally say here until midnight because it forces me to be productive. And everything I need is in this building. So one of the things I like about it is they hold a lot of really cool events here during the year. The best one being midnight breakfast. They basically bring in all the breakfast food you could imagine. You can take it and go somewhere else and study. It's amazing. They also have the Diana Center Cafe in here and Liz is place, which are both better options. Thank you. A dining hall. Right. So this is loses place. They sell Starbucks coffee here. A lot of like grabbing, which is really nice. You can probably hear they using radio on really loud in here. You don't like study in silence. This is a great place and usually those blinds are So I'm getting ready to head over to Hewitt Dining Hall. And in my opinion, cue. It sucks. I think the barn are dining halls are pretty bad. I'm just going to be honest if having really high quality food is essential to you and it will be for these next four years, maybe don't come to barnyard because the I mean, I think most people agree with me that the food is pretty low quality. I'm a little dramatic about it, but we also have access to Columbia dining halls, so I choose to eat Okay, So this is what a typical freshman dorm looks like. It's relatively spacious. We've got a really big desk, um, and lots of storage space for your clothing. And these things are really nice because they've been under your bed. But you can also pull them out and use it to store things on top of No. And then over here we have closet. Also put a lot of things on top of it. Um and I think this is a good place for your shoes. Um, and then I also recommend getting a mini fridge. I think this is the cute little nook over here. I love it. And most of the rooms and the quad have pretty good views, so it looks really pretty, especially when they're snowfall. Thing that I like the most about the quad is that they hold so many events here throughout the year and give away for you. Stop. They had a Halloween fast with free pumpkins for candy free apple cider donuts, which are amazing during February. They have a s'mores night, which is kind of wack because it's freezing outside. But I went anyway to get a Free Beanie, and my room is literally right up there. So didn't require much effort in as a freshman. All of your, like your dorms will be right here. So it's really nice because you could just walk outside and be like, in the heart of campus. Um, and then another weird event that Barnard has is during first semester. They lay out tables all throughout campus, and they put a giant sub on it. So this sub is just lining campus, and it was Because we do share so many researches with Columbia, I highly recommend checking out the campus riel videos for Columbia So this is what a typical lounge looks like. There's a TV. We have a kitchen. There is no fridge, though, so it's important to get your own mini fridge. This is a good place to study, and also the Ari is whole different events in here throughout the year. On DH, they always have, like free insomnia, cookies and stuff like that. Also the year old. That basically sums up your project here, Vardar. Two you can see just Thank you. After I got into Barnard, I was actually a little scared to come here because I was worried it was gonna be too hard, which was a ridiculous fear. Looking back on it now, I think my senior year of high school is actually harder than freshman year. But most of that is because I'm a psych major. It really depends on the classes you're taking. So if you're a narrow major, it's gonna be a lot harder that so right now I'm kind of breezing through freshman year, thankfully, but it really depends on what your major is in what classes you want to take. And, yeah, the difficulty of Boerner. Do something that's really hard to quantify, and it is for all colleges. But I'm going to show you a room that I study in someone, actually, and I'm studying. I love it. It's actually a place I went to So I just finished a club meeting for Pierre Health Exchange. Columbia. And all of these students are Columbia students. Data over here. So tell me about yourself. Yeah, My name's Dana. I'm a sophomore at Barnard College. I'm a woman. Settings in history. Double feature. So what made you choose Barnard? I went to actually transfer student. Andi want Teo and all girls high school. And I really did love my freshman year, and I applied here just because I wanted to find all girls environment again. You really like to campus tour like people. I spoke to that. When? Here. Yeah. So what's your favorite part about Barnard? I think my favorite part so far has been like, like the people I've met, but specifically the professors I've made, like, really strong relationships with several of my professors that I can't imagine what happened anywhere else, particularly cities. And what's your least favourite part? Probably housing Because I don't have housing. And all my friends were also housing. Have a really hard time with it. Yeah. I also like the side and processes involving housing
