Bwog Love: The Barnard Greenhouse

Plants!

As finals loom (or are already here), Bwogger Sarah Braner is just trying to focus on the lights at the end of the tunnel. One of those lights is the Arthur Ross Greenhouse, located on top of Milbank Hall. 

I have an opinion: Milbank Hall is one of the worst buildings on campus. It’s hot, the elevators are slow, and the admissions office looms right over the entryway, bringing back memories of teacher recs and frantic CommonApp padding. But I am happy to report that Milbank has one saving grace: the glass behemoth known as the Arthur Ross Greenhouse that adorns the top floor. Well, okay, maybe “behemoth” isn’t really the right word, everyone’s pressed for space these days. But what it lacks in physical space is more than made up for by the space it has in my heart. I was lucky enough to visit with my Intro Bio lab section, though those interested are able to visit during open hours from 1-3pm on Wednesdays! If that’s not your thing, they also have a great Instagram account (@barnardgreenhouse).

Update, 12/6, 7:30 pm: A previous version of this post stated that an application form is necessary to visit the Greenhouse during open hours; this line has been removed because the form is only necessary for class visits. All students are welcome to open hours, no bureaucracy needed!
