Interview Prospective Students

Columbia College and Columbia Engineering

Alumni Representative Committee (ARC) members help the Office of Undergraduate Admissions by interviewing applicants, representing Columbia at local college fairs and hosting regional programs for admitted students, so that as many students as possible have the opportunity to learn about the unique Columbia experience firsthand.


Barnard Alumnae Admissions Representatives (BAARs) are designated alumnae who act as official links between the Admissions Office and students in their communities. They help the College identify and cultivate outstanding high school students and personalize the College admissions process. They represent Barnard at college fairs, interview prospective students, and host receptions for accepted students.
