3 College Freshman

Athletics: It's an arts school for arts. There aren't any sports teams because we're there to be creative. There are some intramurals and people who do play sports enjoy them at the school.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: We don't have competitive teams, I wish we did. I used to be a volleyball player, until college. We have teams, but they just play for fun. No one really pays any attention to them.

Columbia is not known as a "sports college," and therefore does not have the typical college sports scene going on. There aren't big Saturday games that everyone goes to, dressed up and with their faces painted. There aren't groups of kids on campus that are only known as the jocks. Why? Because Columbia values many virtues, not just athletic ability.

That's not to say that there aren't athletes who attend Columbia, play organized sports, and love every minute of it. Columbia does have sports, but the College isn't known for them. Columbia is made up of all different sorts of people, and whether you are athletic or not, the biggest thing students all have in common is one binding factor—they are all artists.
