Meaning I can start answering questions Monday evening.
People have been LOVING it, so don’t miss out. You can find us at 8 at the gazebo between John Jay and Hamilton.
Reblogging to actual Barnard account because tumblr is ridiculous.
My situation is a little complicated since while I’m technically an international student, I am an American citizen (and hold an American passport). That being said since so many internships are unpaid one, international student should be able to apply for them.
Looking for internships usually involves a few things:
In the end, you just cast out your net, send out a ton of resumes and cover letters and see who bites.
Thank you! I attended the festival my first year and volunteered this past season. I sent an e-mail to the people in charge and asked about internships. They also put up a page on their site with information about interning with them. Definitely check it out next year. It’s a wonderful festival, and it’s dear to my heart.
The professors are AMAZING. The ones I’ve had and have are incredibly accessible and genuinely interested in what I have to say and what I’m involved in. My current academic advisor (whom I’ve taken two classes with) invited those of us who couldn’t go home to Thanksgiving to her place. My first year Reacting to the Past professor took us out to dinner at the place that used to be the center of the women’s suffrage and labor union movements in the 20s. I really cannot speak highly enough of the professors I’ve had. There are bad ones, but they are few and far between.
Intro classes vary in size. Some are large and others are small, but no matter how large, I don’t think any of them reach the size of the larger Columbia lecture classes. My Shakespeare I class has a 60 student limit. My astronomy class had around 70.
As for how competitive Barnard students are, I’ve answered this question here.
