Happy #NationalStudentAthleteDay to all the Barnard and Columbia athletes out there!
Celebrate with us by checking out the latest Barnard’s Got Game feature with Ruba Nadar ’21, a member of Columbia’s women’s rowing team and co-founder of the Columbia/Barnard’s chapter of Athlete Ally, a national advocacy organization working to end homophobia and transphobia in sports.
“Rowing at Barnard has affected my life in so many ways. The most notable are the lifelong friends I have made, the brilliant coaches I’ve worked with, and the athleticism I have had the privilege of developing. Being an athlete on my team — and specifically a Barnard athlete — has brought me such immense pride and passion during my time here,” says Ruba Nadar ’21.
