Departmental Events and Email lists

Members of the Environmental Science Department put together a line-up of Thursday Night Events, via Zoom over the past year and a half so students could once again meet up with classmates, peer mentors, faculty and staff members on a range of topics--from academic talks by young alumnae and people in the field, to career and major planning, shares and games!  Event links are posted on the EnvSci Events Calendar for those Barnard students who join our email lists.  Email us from your Barnard address along with your class standing if you are interested in receiving information on opportunities and events. Throughout the year, contact a faculty advisor or staff member if you have questions or need assistance.  We continue to be here for you.
