3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There is not a variety of classes offered, or nearly enough professors to teach them. The class sizes are small, which is a plus and lows for better interaction. A handful of the professors on campus are rude and degrading towards students. They make racist and sexist comments, or comments just not appropriate for a classroom setting. With the money that is paid you are not given an adequate college experience or knowledge.

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: A lot of the students who graduate from Columbia College who are not teachers end up getting jobs, just not jobs in the career field they want or desire to be in. It is hard to ask for help for jobs or internships because it takes the career coaches forever to get back to you, so you have to do it yourself. The alumni are very involve with the campus and fund a lot at this school. Many of the students who previously graduated from Columbia College come back and work in admissions.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The security on campus is average, but it could be a whole lot better.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I lived on campus for two years, and the restrictions are the worse. It is like being in high school except you're paying to live on campus. The buildings are old and are not wildly prepared for natural disasters as in the flood that happen fall of 2015. The dorms are not really handicap accessible, and room lottery is a huge hassle.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Compared to other schools it should be better. The track for track and field is raggedy.

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Columbia College curriculum does not prepare students for the world after graduation. Students who are top students while attending here go on to graduate school to be in remedial classes because they are not prepared. Most professors are passionate about what they are teaching, while others do not care either way. The way that situations/incidents are handle are not appropriate and instead of trying to fix problems they sweep it under the rug. The funding that is put into the school does not come directly to programs, buildings, or activities for students and they will not enclose that information to inquiring students. The only good program at Columbia college is the teaching program. The transfer rate is also really high because of dissatisfied students and parents.

5 College Junior

5 College Junior

5 College Junior

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I enjoyed living on campus! Rooms were generous, roommates were great, RA was easy to talk to.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: We don't have greek life at our school but you can pledge with schools in the area.

5 College Junior

4 College Junior

Athletics: I enjoy the sports we have and the workout/athletic facilities are very nice!

2 College Freshman

Health & Safety: We have campus police around campus but most of them are not approachable. I always call or walk with a friend when it is late on campus. We also do not have gates and are in the middle of a bad area so many individuals in the community surrounding the college have an easy access and opportunity to come onto campus.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: What I like most about Columbia College is the class sizes. The class sizes allow great opportunities for one-on-one with the professors and confidence in asking questions in class. The enjoy the professors style of encouraging all of the students to do their absolute best and strive for more than a good grade in the class.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Compared to other schools Columbia College is the best for providing individuals with jobs before they graduate high school and also providing hands-on learning to gain a true understanding of what to expect once in the workplace.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The campus housing for freshman is probably the best. As housing options increase for upperclassmen the quality decreases. The social atmosphere of all of the dorms are great and they are in great distance of the classrooms on campus.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: We do not have much Greek like on campus and the Greek life that is available they mostly consider upperclassmen.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: All of the athletes here work together as a team and have a good support system always encouraging them.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My school encourages everyone to do their absolute best and does not accept anything short of that.

1 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Do not go here its a terrible school.

Campus Housing: I would recommend to never live on campus. I feel bad for first years because they are forced to stay on campus and that really sucks because their dorm is the worst to live in. There are way to many rules. They treat you like you are in middle school with rules and the RA's take their jobs way to seriously.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletes at this school all stick together and do not really branch out to the non athletes. Most of the sports are actually decent and a lot of them have winning seasons. There really isn't a fan support though and the facilities really need to be updated.

1 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Honestly Columbia College has been a horrible experience for me. Unfortunately many of the professors here are very old school (and old) and are not up to date with the times of learning. All the classes I have been in have been strictly lecture, which is sad because the class sizes are small so it is easy to get a class involved but the professors do not care. Also living on campus is horrible. First, they pressure you to live on campus because they give you $500 dollars to stay on campus which only covers 1/5 of the cost of living and dining on campus. Second, they have strict rules about who can come into your room. You have to sign in guest even though they live in the same hallway as you. It doesn't really make sense and if they catch you with people that are not signed in to your room you get reprimanded and if it keeps happening you can get kicked off campus. Another reason why this school is horrible is the food sucks. In the morning they run out of bagels and cream cheese almost every other day and that is the only thing I eat for breakfast so paying for a meal plan sucks because you are not getting your $$ worth. The lunch food is okay but if you eat the food on the weekend its nasty and I'm pretty sure its left overs for the week. I would never eat in the cafe on the weekends. Also the staff around the school do not know how to do their jobs. They think they are of higher power and think they are always right when something so simple they can't do it. Honestly, I could keep going on about how much this school sucks and why you should never come here but if you do then honestly good luck. I can not wait to transfer out of here at the end of this semester. The only good thing about this school is the couple of good friends I met during my short time here. I will miss them but leaving this horrible school is going to better my life indefinitely.

Athletics: The sports teams are known but are not widely followed. I feel there is a lack of a fan base due to the fact that the school has not sports fields; anything but tennis, basketball, and swimming, is held at another location.
