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 college seems like an amazing school, that opens up many opportunities for the schools students. all the campuses and buildings are beautiful and well kept. visiting there as a sophomore was the best decision i could make, because it opened my eyes and made me realize i have to years to physically and mentally prepare for a prestigious but awesome school like this one.

    Exciting campus in an area full of diversity and art. Best for people who are more interested in having the attention focused primarily on the arts, and secondary the education.

    The phrase you get what you put in is thrown around, and for good reasons. This could be the greatest place in the world, putting you in connection with your industry's greatest innovators, or you could barely float along and graduate not having learned a thing. It's all up to you and your motivations.

    A fun, lively, and diverse school. Supposedly small class sizes and activity-based learning. High tuition and dormitory costs.

    Columbia looks like the kid of school that offers complete diversity. I appreciate a school that encourages creativity and doesn't limit that to any particular type of student. Super excited to visit in person and make my decision if I can handle Chicago full time!

    Columbia is a lot tougher than high school, but still doable and fun. I love the small class sizes and hands on projects. You will meet a mix of every different kind of person and personality here!

    In the heart of the city, Columbia is a school to chase your dreams rather than just get an education. Being in the hands of professors that deeply care and truly appreciate their students efforts and works of art, is the best part of Columbia. No matter what you pursue, you are always around people who support you and your wildest of dreams.

    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.
