Come say hi!
ABOUTFounded on the auspicious 11th of November, in the year 2011, Barnard Baby has blogged about provincial life in the small rural hamlet of New York City since arriving at the gates of the inimitable Barnard College with a vial of White Men's Tears in her pocket and a pair of sensible size 6 1/2 boots on her feet.

Come say hi!
Guess what? My roommate this semester is a VISP student! Which means she was kind enough to answer this question for me. Here’s what she has to say:
I have been taking the class called “sociology of sexuality” and it is fun. The course called “organizing innovation” is also very interesting.As a VISP, the suggestion is bring everything you need here including bedding, enough winter clothes(if you are to spend ur winter in New York), etc., because New York is expensive.When it comes to orientation, be selective toward events, for orientation schedule is usually packed. Save some time to prepare for the academic life and your own exploration of the city.Program filing can be exhausting, so u may talk to other visps or your advisor and ask about courses which may help you decide what courses u will take.

Check out my new Ask page. I love you all, but it’s gotten to the point where I get more messages than I can answer. So instead of leaving you to wonder why you haven’t seen a response from me, I decided to leave y’all with some guidelines.
It depends on the student, but I will say that from my personal experience, the happiest students have been the ones who take advantage of the city. The students who don’t are sometimes less satisfied with their experience and often end up transferring, if only bc they feel like Barnard is not a great fit for them.
(I remember being in the public safety shuttle with the girl who would NOT stop talking about how much she hated New York City because she was a homebody. That’s not to say people who like to stay in are better or worse than people who like to go out, just that they are more likely to not enjoy their time here. AGAIN, this does not apply to everyone. Every student is different, and I am certain there are students who are perfectly happy staying in or around campus. Sometimes it’s an accessibility issue, sometimes it’s a preference, and either way, it’s completely valid.)
Anyways, there is definitely the existence of a Morningside Heights bubble that tends to strengthen around midterms, but it’s pretty damn easy to puncture with a little planning and will.
I think the maximum is
350 250 words. Anyone in the tag can confirm?
