What factors have influenced your decision to apply to Barnard College? What intrigues you about Barnard’s approach to the liberal arts and sciences?
I guess I should start this since I’ve been avoiding this question the entire…break. GAHH I CAN’T WAIT TO FINISH THIS (guarantee that i will, trust.) After college & scholarship stuff, it’s back to my BIGBANG obsession, catching up on books, fanfics, soooooooo much until June 2012. Anywayzzzz
In two words, I can only describe Barnard College as a “women’s sanctuary.” If Athena, the goddess of wisdom handcrafts, and warfare were to gaze upon the institution, a glimmering smile would appear on her face. Being one of the leading female liberal arts school in the nation, Barnard College has the necessities for women empowerment along with the resources of an Ivy league school.
As odd at this may sound, I heard about Barnard College through its youtube.com channel. I was fond of the fact that Barnard stood out compared to other female liberal arts schools by being involved with the Youtube community. After watching videos, such as the “Women Changing Africa,” I was enlightened by the fact that women were not only showcasing their knowledge and contributing to the world, but also leading the world. Viewing more videos, where Barnard students were involved in the arts, leadership programs, and science, Barnard College became the top institution to further my education.
I want to be like one of the students from those videos; having the opportunity to not only sit down and present in seminars, I wanted to be involved in the science departments at Barnard,
Barnard College is settled in the perfect location for a balance of nature, history, and urban culture. I am aspiring to be a dermatologist and in the future, shall deem myself as a female representative in science. New York has such dynamic geology; humans roamaround cement roads and massive buildings. Meanwhile, located not too far, one can excavate through wetlands, grasslands, and the Hudson River to discover more of New York’s natural history. I want to attend Barnard College as a Biology major and what I think is most fortunate for this institution to possess is its accessibility to various sources of nature. Growing up in Los Angeles, majority of its natural history has depleted and now replaced by “fancy shmancy buildings”. I love the college’s interaction with the New York community. I am a people-focused individual and incorporating educational, biological, and human understanding into Barnard College courses truly marks a significant difference between universities in Los Angeles.
In an essence, I want to expand my knowledge from academics and learn more from other Barnard students and New York-ers. 9 WAYS OF KNOWING
York has an abundance of history that travels back to the colonial period.
