5 College Senior

Academics: The department head for Behavioral Science at Columbia College, Dr. Rosenthal is very personable. My first experience with her was December 2013 when I decided that I wanted to complete my degree, she made the process easy on my part. You would have thought that I was a college freshman instead of a former evening college student.

5 College Junior

Academics: Here in Columbia people can tell if you have studied Social Work with Columbia College. We have an advanced standing program and we learn more about counseling techniques and professionalism. Our professors’ tests are challenging just like the licensure exam, and we write many papers to prepare us for future assessments.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Professors are very pushy to do work. They motivate us to do well and give a personal attention to each one when needed.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Awesome faculty who care about students as people and do anything to help.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I enjoy my department. There's not a lot of faculty members, which makes it easy to get to know all of them. My academic adviser is always asking me about internships that she thinks I might be interested in.
