5 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: There is nothing more unique than learning from the people that are writing your text books, or that are cited in your text books dozens of times. The availability of high-quality knowledge is unreal.

4 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: It's Columbia - if you're not in awe of what you see each day when you arrive (or walk around) on campus, there is something wrong with you. There is such a rich history of scholars it's ridiculous.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Dining: The dining room is pretty decent. It is a little pricey, for reasons I can't yet identify - but, what are you going to do? There is a wide variety of options, and it's easy to get in and out and eat in the available dining room between classes. You can also order food to go, if you want to head to the library to eat.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: Housing in NYC is VERY different than other places (smaller cities). You're looking at smaller units with higher prices, and less amenities. However, it is not too difficult to find roommates, or units for that matter - but know what you are looking for and what you are willing to pay. If you use a Broker/Realtor to help, you will have to pay them 12% of the yearly rent (or sometimes one month, or a discounted rate for some because of student status) for their services. They are ALWAYS busy, especially during the summer, and they're not nearly as helpful (because of this) as what you may have experienced in other places.

5 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: If you can't find something new to eat for every meal, every day - you're crazy. :)

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: There is a clinic on campus that is easily accessible. The school borders Harlem, but you need ID to get into any of the buildings - and all guests must be signed in. There are incidents of mugging, etc at times late at night, but I have yet to hear of anything more serious.

5 Recent Alumnus

Nightlife: It's NYC. Whatever fun you fancy, you can find.

3 Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: I really have no idea what the drug safety is on campus. I assume at this point in education, the heavy drinking and drug use is not prevalent - especially in Ivy League.

4 Recent Alumnus

Transportation: Public transportation is the way to go. Having a car in the city is ridiculous. Be prepared to do a lot of walking, learn the subway system, and know where your cabbie should be taking you. It's far easier to take public transportation than to try to drive yourself around the city.
