internet marketing The Big Sis Diaries: College Visits (yes, Sasha's already pushing for the Ivies!)

College Visits (yes, Sasha's already pushing for the Ivies!)

As a junior, I have been subjected to the stresses and thrills of college searching. It was Sasha, though, who seemed to feel most at home at the Columbia campus. (I was really looking at Barnard, but we strolled through the surrounding areas to get a "feel"- which I loved!)

I was pretty excited to see this flyer posted around Barnard; it's advertising a campus showing of a movie that clearly highlights Ethiopia. Also on campus the day we visited was a festival for children adopted from China. All of these cultural events that hit close to my home certainly drew me toward the atmosphere of the school- I know I'd be happy learning more about the aspects of my life that are most important to me. Now, if only I could get in- their acceptance rate is a little intimidating...

Recognize this? It's the diner always featured in "Seinfeld" :)

As a Columbia alumna (SEAS 2000), I'm all for it. Go Sasha! My son, also from Ethiopia, would be Columbia class of 2029. If Sasha's there then, maybe they could meet at Tom's for coffee (or a Broadway shake -- coffee ice cream with chocolate syrup).

If you have any questions about campus life at Columbia or Barnard, feel free to let me know. I'd be happy to tell you what I know. (You can either post a comment here and I'll send you an e-mail address, or you can find me on the CHSFS forums). Unfortunately, I have no pull with admissions though...

Good luck with the college searching. Barnard's a great place.

"Good luck" with your college search. I'm sure you'll do well wherever you go.
