3 College Junior

Health & Safety: We are in the heart of Chicago, so there are some crime alerts every so often. For the most part, if you walk with a couple of friends to class and pay attention to your surroundings then you should be pretty safe.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The professors in the Audio Department are awesome. They all know what they are talking about because after class days they go out into their field and work what they teach.

Overall Experience: I was able to find some work through my teacher when he offered up in class to help one of the alum with their company on some shows they were slammed on. The instructors try to get you work if they think that you deserve it.

Campus Housing: I live in the Dwight building, and the spaces here are great. Whenever they do maintenance it takes a while for them to actually finish, and they have also said that things would be replaced by a certain deadline and then had it pushed back.

Athletics: I know that we have a baseball club. We don't have athletic teams though.

Columbia College is Chicago's best-kept secret. The College can be a great asset for many students, but it's important to remember that Columbia is what it is—an art school specializing in media art. It is one of the fastest paced colleges in the United States, with some of the most up-to-date technologies on the market. It is a place that will make or break you. When you come to Columbia, you will either work harder than you have in your entire life and become somebody, or you will realize that you have another dream. Columbia will not joke around with you. Everything here is very real. Everywhere you go on campus unconsciously puts off an energy uttering the phrase, "roll up your sleeves and get to work." In every classroom, faculty member, and assignment, there is truth to your work and how your life will be if you truly want to work in the field you have come to Chicago to study. Coming to Columbia is an investment in your future and worth every penny you shell out of your pocket.

Columbia students work hard. There is passion in what they do. On the weekends, yes, they go out with friends, but more than likely what they are talking about is not how the football team did, or what happened to so and so—it's about projects, life, ideas, film shoots, pictures, shows, and stories. This is a grown-up campus committed to getting you where you want to be, but only if you are willing to put in the work.
