Life in Cooperstown

There are a variety of fun and interesting activities that take place year-round in Cooperstown or nearby. During the winter months, students enjoy skiing, snowshoeing, and hiking. The Clark Sports Center is less than a mile away and has all the exercise and fitness opportunities you could want. The Fenimore Art Museum, Farmers Museum, and Baseball Hall of Fame are right on your doorstep. Just a few miles away are the Ommegang Brewery and the Glimmerglass Opera House, which are both fun summer-time adventures.

Cooperstown is home to the Cooperstown Graduate Program, and the Bassett hospital regularly has other medical and nursing students from Columbia, Albany, and other surrounding colleges. Indeed, roughly a third of your Columbia classmates will do either their 5-week surgery or primary care rotations in Cooperstown as part of the traditional Major Clinical Year.
