Student Life & Services
Barnard students soon discover that their classmates are among the principal resources of their undergraduate years. Cosmopolitan in nature, the student population includes residents of nearly every state and some 39 foreign countries as well as those who live within commuting distance. Diversity is one of the few generalizations that can be made safely about Barnard students; a mingling of economic, regional, ethnic, and cultural groups is evident in campus life. Over 90 percent of the students live in College housing and participate in the educational programs, cultural events, and social activities of their residence halls.
