The Way We Were

What was it like to be a Barnard student 25, 50—even 100 years ago? We dug deep into the photo archives and found pictures of campus life dating as far back as 1912. See this slideshow for scenes of studying and socializing through the decades. (At left, students gather by the fireplace in Brooks Hall in 1946.)

Usually, fall letters from college presidents are full of the typical fall joys: the trees, the leaves, the newly enrolled students and returning faculty. And we have all of these on campus indeed. But there’s something else on campus this year; something that’s not so beautiful at all. Something that needs to be discussed and named and analyzed, even at the risk of inviting controversy and criticism.
