3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There are many friendly people on campus. I don't really share the same interests as most, but everyone is very social.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Everyone does his or her own thing. Some are geeky, most are artsy and everyone seems pretty accepting about differences in people's lives.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Very artsy school. Majority of kids have tats and piercings, I'm a definite minority. Since the school is located in the city there isn't an overall vibe on social life and relationships. Maybe small groups get together as friends but who knows?

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There is a little bit of everything.

Facts & Statistics

Female Undergrads
53%
Male Undergrads
47%
Birth Control Available?
Yes
You will find condoms all over campus. Columbia also hosts a yearly wellness fair that provides STD testing, condoms, and facts about safe sex.
Social Scene
Because Columbia is located in the heart of the third largest city in America, the social scene expands to the size of the city. Within the dorms, there are always events going on for students to take part in, and off campus, there is an infinite number of parties, hangouts, and student events going on. You just have to find what it is you're looking for, and Columbia will be catering it.
Hookups or Relationships?
At Columbia, there are hookups and breakups, new relationships and old relationships, just like any other college. A lot of relationships spring up out of the dorms and classes.
Dress Code
No dress code here. There is, however, an unwritten rule to be "different," and wear whatever you want. If you're happy, it makes no difference what you're wearing. It's Chicago for crying out loud.
