Columbia College is not the relevant denominator.
The relevant denominator is at least Columbia College plus the Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Sciencesl, as those are the core undergraduate schools in which most of the athletes are enrolled. Arguably, if you are counting as the numerator both men and women athletes, you should include Barnard College as well since a significant minority of female athletes are enrolled at Barnard. Finally, since every year there are a handful of athletes plucked from the School of General Studies, the most inclusive yet still appropriate denominator would be:
Columbia College 4,644
Fu School 1,619
Minimum Subtotal 6,263
Subtotal For Male and Female Athletes 8,836
General Studies 2,449
Maximum Total For Male and Female Athletes 11,285
Columbia's undergraduate student body including CC and Fu is definitely larger than Dartmouth, Princeton, Yale and Brown. If you include Barnard since we are measuring Columbia's 29 varsity teams including 15 women's teams, Columbia is also larger than Harvard.
