SOCIAL LIFE OF BARNARD

SOCIAL LIFE AND ACTIVITIES OF BARNARD
   
                The past president of Barnard College alumna Ellen Futter,often characterized Barnard by
saying,''This is not a cleistered enclave, "thus coining a slogan for the ages . While students find campus activities galore,they have never-ending access to the unquantifiable offerings of what is arguably the world's greatess city; moreover,the college tries to make the city's offerings affordable for the usually cash-strapped undergrad.Discount vouchers to first-run films and the performing ares supplement the popular Urban New York program , which takes students to events such as wicked on Broadway, opening day at Yankee Stadium,the New York Philhatmonic,and enen the circus all for the price of the subway ($4.00 round-trip). Each trip is escorted by a member of the college or university faculty or administration,providing an extra opportunity to get to know a key member of the community in a relaxed,sometimes unconventional,setting.
              Most students worry ,to some degree or other, about making friends in college.If they can be generalized in any way , Barnard friendships are built to last.That said, the need for privacy inherent in living in New York City means that personal space is valued and respected.people don't run right up to you to get to know you here , but don't mistake that for unfriendliness. Attend any club meeting ,event,or party and you're sure to make a new acquaintance.Whether it's the woman in your sponsor group during orientation,the friend of a friend from high school or summer camp who lives down the hall,or the person who wants to have coffee after orchestra practice,student life lends its to the friendship-making process.
