In addition to having the opportunity to register for a membership at the Dodge Fitness Center of Columbia, the pre-college program offers free exercise classes, some in the morning and some in the evening. Classes in the past have included multi-impact aerobics, yoga, and self-defense.

Arts and Crafts Lunch Breaks:
Once a week, during the two hour lunch break, various arts and crafts activities are offered for your enjoyment. Activities in the past have included jewelry making, t-shirt designing, baking cupcakes, photo frame decorating, and designing door signs.

Movie Nights:
Once a week, a popular movie, or TV sitcom series will be shown either in the cinema on campus, or outside on the lawn projected on to a big screen. Sometimes a trip to the movie theater is arranged instead.

Every Friday night after curfew an activity is arranged in the residence hall lounges. These vary from card games to making ice cream sundaes

Life on Campus
Program residents live on the Barnard campus in Sulzberger Hall, a modern air-conditioned facility equipped with high-speed internet connections. Students live in double rooms, and roommates are assigned based on students' responses to a housing questionnaire.

Monday to Friday breakfast, lunch, dinner and weekend brunches are included in the cost of the program. On Saturday and Sunday
evenings, students can sample a wide variety of neighborhood restaurants. All students in residence are guided by a carefully selected group of Barnard and Columbia resident assistants and are supervised by the Dean of Students, Pre-College Programs/Area Director of Residential Life, a full-time administrator.

If you live on campus, your Resident Assistant (RA) will become a very important resource and friend for you over the four weeks. Hall meetings are arranged as well as hall activities. In addition, living with a roommate within a real college dormitory setting is a big and important part of your pre-college experience. Students who live in the greater New York City metropolitan area may choose to attend the four week or one-week sessions as commuters. For special events, commuters may arrange to stay overnight in the residence hall at a moderate cost. The commuter meal plan consists of weekday lunches in the campus dining hall.

Special Requirements:
