    Columbia College is expensive since it is private school, but I have to say that you do get your money's worth. Sometimes you may feel that your money is being wasted, but other times you will see the things that the college is trying to do to make college life better for you. They always have these awesome events that you can attend and make cool things. One time they had an artist come and draw a caricature of students which was free of charge for us.
