            I appreciate Barnard because of the services it offers to both students and alumnae. There is something for everyone--from the classicist to the trailblazer--but what makes Barnard distinctive is its commitment to awakening people to different ways of learning and decision-making. I congratulate Barnard on 125 years of continuous challenge, commitment, and outreach. Whether you studied at Barnard or not, take advantage of the college's open events, its festivals, and its forums. Get to know how courage is nurtured and character brought forth in full dimension.
