    If you can, come visit! It can be really helpful to have a feel for campus and the students that go here. If not, reach out to a current student via Facebook or the Admissions Office. When thinking if you are a fit for Barnard: do you value learning? Do you want to be in an intense academic environment that values women? What excites you most about coming to Barnard?

    Be Social! There is nothing like talking with other young people to make connections you never would have believed were possible. There are so many interesting young women with a huge variety of backgrounds and getting to know them is one of the best parts about school. Also, if you're considering the school, COME VISIT! Take a tour around campus or stay for a weekend. It really helps you to get a feel for the school and evaluate if it is the right fit for you.
