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, some of your Columbia classmates will do their 5-week surgery or primary care rotations in Cooperstown as part of the traditional Major Clinical Year.
