College student orientation
Found in 4 Collections and/or Records:
The collection consists of materials from the Barnard College office of Orientation and Activities.
Orientation booklets were given out to new Barnard students at the beginning of each academic year. Booklets from 1949-1967 include first-year class directories, along with illustrated and often lighthearted guides to Barnard, Columbia, and surrounding neighborhoods. Booklets from 1971 onward include schedules of Orientation Week events. Many orientation booklets contain specific themes.
This collection consists of the Barnard student publication, Reorientation, which served as an alternative to the college-issued student handbook.

The collection contains memorabilia and ephemera from her time as a student, including class schedules, syllabi, orientation materials, Barnard publications, T-shirts, buttons, and Barnard merchandise as well as playbills from theatrical productions Wilk attended while at Barnard.
