Barnard’s annual Family Weekend is a wonderful opportunity for families to visit the campus, meet some of the people who make the College such a special place, and, of course, spend time with their Barnard students.

October 22 and 23, 2010, saw parents and students enjoying open houses in chemistry, psychology, and biology; the last one taking place in the Arthur Ross Greenhouse. Other events included tours of the new, state-of-the-art Diana Center, the Deans’ Reception, and student dance and theatre performances. Families were also invited to discussions about student internships and study abroad. In addition to opportunities to meet President Spar and faculty members, all were free to explore the city that is Barnard’s extended classroom.
