    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It's great that you have such easy access to everyone in the quad and you don't have to walk 15 minutes to class. The dorms are small but not cramped, and it's New York City!! Get used to small square footage.

    Course highlights:

    All varsity athletics are run through Columbia University, but in almost all sports, we come in last of all the Ivy League schools.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Most students don't really care much about sports or about going to games, but there is some school spirit and bonding in our mediocrity.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Academics at Barnard and Columbia couldn't be better. There are courses for everything, and you have the option of staying on Barnard or Columbia's campus

    Course highlights:

    for classes as much as your like. Barnard classes are generally smaller while Columbia classes are generally larger... but everything depends

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    on the department and what you're studying. My suggestion: follow the best professors, regardless of which school they teach in. Academics are challenging but in the best way possible.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It's there if you want it, but no pressure at all if you don't. I think that being in a city provides you with lots of social/nightlife options -

    Course highlights:

    you don't have to go to a basement at a frat party drinking if you don't want to. Bars, clubs, plays, restaurants, etc are available!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Public Safety is a great resource taken really seriously. The neighborhood of Morningside Heights is extremely safe, and living in NYC you learn about where you are at what time makes all the difference - even if you're from a small town, you'll learn quickly!
