3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Because it's an art school there is going to be a wide range of individuals. Guys and Girls range from (in no particular order) nerd, gamer, hipster, drugie, partier, hypersexual, dumb, athletic, introvert, extrovert, "popular", annoying girls, annoying boys and the list goes on.

Guys & Girls: Mostly with one glance you can tell who is an art student in Chicago. The dress here for students is very clean, and fashionable.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Eh, they're nothing special. Everyone is very hipster and artsy and tries a little too hard, so it's hard to tell who is actually cool.

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There's different types and looks of the boys and girls at our school. You'll see girls with pink and green hair with lots of piercings and tattoos to girls with snapbacks and Jordans to girls wearing Express and Versace. This is the same with the boys too. It's a pretty 50/50. But the interests varies from one another and sometimes their appearances doesn't fit their personalities or interests. Relationships do go around but for the most part it's pretty relaxed and free.

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.
