What is Barnard Bound?

Barnard Bound provides a taste of both Barnard College and New York City for promising young women who will be high school seniors in Fall 2018 and self-identify as students of color (which we define as individuals from Black/African-American, Hispanic/Latina, American Indian/Alaskan Native, Asian, bi- and multi-racial backgrounds), especially those students who couldn’t otherwise afford to visit. Due to limited funding, Barnard Bound is only open to students currently residing within the continental U.S.

During this two day overnight program, students will have the opportunity to experience the cultural diversity of New York City and Morningside Heights, while getting a full perspective of life as a potential Barnard student. Participants will stay overnight on campus with a current student host within the residence halls. They will also participate in workshops, panels and classes while getting a feel for student life and meeting current Barnard students, faculty and administrators.  Finally, students will learn important details about our admissions and financial aid processes.
