Some heartlanders assert that New York City is not really part of the United States. This is something of an exaggeration but, as most of us already know. New Yorkers are certainly a unique bunch. Where else can you take a cab driven by a Russian immigrant to go to a Cuban Chinese restaurant? But all kidding aside. New York is a great cos- mopolitan city and it is precisely this ethnic diversity that makes it this way. New Yorkers can trace their origins to all corners of the globe. Most are immigrants or the children of immigrants who came here in search of a better life. Immigrants preserved their institutions and cultures, frequently creating scale replicas of the towns and villages they left behind, on the new soil. Today one can go from little Italy to Chinatown to Spanish Harlem to Lubavitch Brooklyn, all in the span of one after- noon. Barnard shares in this ethnic mix. It is a microcosm, however imperfect, of the city in which it is located. Some of its students are first generation Americans for whom a Barnard education is the first step toward achieving success. Though many students come to college hoping to break away from what they feel are the prohibitive constraints of their native cultures or religions and try to form new identities, most Barnard women value their ethnic heritages. Ethnic student organizations celebrate these traditions as an important part of the Barnard experience. What is even more important though, is the broadening of ideas that occurs in meeting and associating with people from different cultural and reli- gious backgrounds. The education that comes from becoming close with someone from a different background and learning to under- stand and appreciate their culture is more important than any book knowledge. This is the first year that Mortarboard has included an ethnic section. There was some initial resistence to the idea. Considerably fewer ethnicities are represented than exist at Barnard. All beginnings are hard and we hope to have a fuller section next year. We at Mortar- board believe that ethnic student organizations are an important feature of life at Barnard and deserve to be remembered. Carol Green B ' 81
