What Students Are Saying

3.82 Average Rating
As far as academics Columbia takes it seriously. If you have any trouble understanding any work even the teachers who are not your assigned teacher will do their best to make sure that you get all your questions answered. They are really concerned about your future. Also, the classes are not as big as the average University , there are about 15 to 30 students in each classroom setting and it makes you feel more comfortable to ask questions to get a better understanding of things. I really appreciate that !

Do not believe any reviews about this school being full of Easy A's, ESPECIALLY if your'e a film or theatre major, you've got your work cut out for you. There is always enough work to keep me busy, but I have never found myself under unbearable pressure, and even if I do, I know that there is someone around willing to lend an ear, like the on-campus counselors.

We're an arts school, so we've heard all the jokes about the education not being quality. We have an honors program, so if you're looking for a challenge, you can get it. Or you can take basic core classes and focus more on your major. Whatever floats your boat.

I'm in the honors program so all of my classes have been difficult.
