What is your overall opinion of this school?

My major is not an option in the drop down menu, so I wanted to specify here that I am a joint major in Art History and Studio Arts at Bard College. I am going to be a Sophomore in the fall and thoroughly enjoyed my freshman year experience. While there is always that moment of realization that you're not a kid anymore, it tends to be fleeting as the reality of adulthood sinks in. Bard jumped us right in with its Learning and Thinking Program and kept us busy with unique activities to introduce us into the literature and analytical thinking that Bard encourages. Although leaving for school three weeks earlier than everyone else was frustrating, it was worth it because I got to meet one of my best friends who I spent many days with during L&T. We wrote poems about yams and sweaters and lived our best Freshman lives. Bard is small, but that nourishes a more connected environment not only with professors, but also with the other students. My roommate became one of my closest friends and the boy that lived right next door also joined our crew. I wouldn't trade a moment of my freshman year experience at Bard. The on campus living is comfortable and fun, while the off campus living is lacking with its tenants in nearby towns treating renting students very poorly. Being on campus, in my opinion, is a much better opportunity because you can sleep in before classes and still get there on time! Everything at Bard is a maximum 25 minute walk (that is from one side of campus to the other). I am very excited to be living in a Suite with five girls next year right near the Fischer Arts Building where all of the Orchestral performances take place. The dorm sizes are very decent, especially when it comes to living in a Suite. We will have our own kitchen, bathroom, and living room next year! The overall campus facilities are all very nice, and many have been redone in recent years. Bard's science building is almost completely new and an amazing place to take lab classes, or study for finals in the study pods. Another beautiful building on campus is the Fischer Center, designed by Frank Gehry; the same man to design the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Down Town Los Angeles. We have an amazing gym with great yoga, pilates, and cycling classes throughout the week. Although our food is not the most incredible thing to eat, Bard does have a farm that sells fresh produce on Thursdays that can we used for delicious recipes. I find myself getting more produce to cook with rather than going to the dining hall. There is a shuttle to reach off campus towns such as Red Hook, which has our grocery store, some restaurants, and our local movie theatre. Another town nearby is Kingston which has the most civilization closest to Bard, however, there is only a shuttle here on weekends. Of course, the true gem of Bard is its professors and academics; this is the reason I chose Bard. It speaks highly of the school that not only me, but my sister before me, and my mother are both Bard alumni. I am in love with the Art History department and Studio Arts at Bard. Bard allows me to pursue my love of the Arts while still keeping track of my goal to become a Midwife in the future. I take classes for my majors while also focusing on a premed track as well. I absolutely adore Bard and all the things that come with it!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Bard College is a beautiful place with it's surrounding environment being at the center of the Hudson Valley; with the architecture with a mix of an old and new. There are incredible professors and students that they can have a one on one bonding time.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Oh, this school changed my life! I never went here personally, but the trans prostitute I banged last weekend did. She didn't graduate or nothin' but because she owed the banks so much money from her student loans so she could come here, she became a whore and let me tell you, dude, best lay of my life. She had nice tits! Nothing big, you know, B-cups at most, but they were so soft and smooth, the tit job felt like heaven. Such a nice, tight ass too. And, I ain't gay or nothin' but her dick was pretty damn cute. Thanks for making this girl broke, guys! I owe you one!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

as a 1978 graduate, I thought of bard as a major cross road for me in that il earned to love college again after transferring from a larger university. small classroom size and accessibility to my instructors was the main reason I chose bard. the ability to be a free thinker and to be challenged were wonderful and helped me to go on in the health professions as a dentist, now retired. my one comment today is that bard has swung way to the left politically and does not seem to invite counterpoint from a conservative perspective. this is pretty evident in much of the communications I receive as an alumnus. president Leon botstein, who I remember very personally, should be more active in this, in my opinion. I have always felt and still do that colleges should encourage both sides to allow students to make up their own minds, not be indoctrinated. I would hope that bard redirects its path to encourage more students with more diversified views. when exposed to real life, this would make the graduates better prepared to be successful. respectfully submitted

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Bard College isn't a bad school. The academics are above average and I've learned to become a politically active member of civil society. We're encouraged to get involved and support local organizations which I love doing. The small-town atmosphere is most likely homely and welcoming to most, but not really my thing (I'm a city girl at heart). To anyone looking to get involved in social activism or enhance your artistic abilities, this is the place. If you really enjoy school-led glow stick parties, this is also the place. The professors here really care about the individual students and intellectual conversations are prevalent. I've definitely grown a lot since coming here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I visited Bard before I made my final decision of where to go. I found the academics the most interesting and compelling part of my entire experience on this tour. I have heard outside information about the type of students that attend Bard and I did not feel I would fit in well there. The campus is beautiful, it is just too big and spread out for the idea I had in my head of what a college is.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Bard! It's the best place to be a liberal arts student. I am a biology major but I still have the time to take a painting class because it's also a part of what I love to do even though I'm on the pre-med track. The party scene is very lowkey, Bard is more into small functions rather than big parties with a large amount​ of students...

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I adore this place. An amazing education and experience. Inspiringly idealistic, and a stunning campus. The student body is increasingly diverse, and for all the cliches, really wonderful people, if slightly morally pliant. Professors are brilliant.
