What Students Are Saying

3.78 Average Rating
Columbia College is a great liberal arts, small, all-women's college if your personality suits that type of environment. Professors are willing to help you, and you can truly grow if you take advantage of all of the great opportunities offered. I've enjoyed my last three years and look forward to my last year, with bittersweet thoughts about graduation.

Columbia College is an amazing place to go for your post secondary education. It is a private 4 year women's college in Columbia, S.C. It has a friendly atmosphere because it is a small college.
