On-campus housing is really over-priced and the security is ridiculous. If you can, try to find roommates and get a place off campus. Chances are, it'll be cheaper and nicer.

    Columbia is an amazing school in the heart of Chicago-the buildings of campus are interspersed throughout a concrete jungle of museums, businesses, and parks on the lakefront. For a liberal arts school, you can't beat Columbia in terms of output and talent. Every individual thinking of attending shout think no further- you'll get a well-rounded arts education taught by professionals working out in the field.

    It is a great place to learn because there are THOUSANDS of opportunities literally thrown at you. Our school has enough money to have actual celebrities and successful leaders in the field of our choice of industry to come and speak. The hands-on experience in your first year makes it all worth the while.
