Barnard College has a beautiful, tiny campus with its main entrance at 117th and Broadway.

The American Institute of Architects' Guide to New York has unkind words about the place, saying that its original buildings, like Barnard Hall, "aped the architecture of Columbia's" and that "later and lesser" architects were responsible for newer buildings like Lehman, Reid, McIntosh, and Altschul, which were "without reference to street or campus". It notes that "quality control has been reestablished" with the construction of Sulzberger Hall. They have warm words, too, for The Diana, which is "full of...materials that give considerable warmth to the space".[1]
