Greek Life: No greek life. Too traditional and bro-ey for art students.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: We don't have Greek life and I've yet to meet a Columbia student who wishes we did. We function beautifully and cohesively without any Greek life or Sports. If being in the "in-crowd" in high school wasn't for you, then Columbia IS for you.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Columbia does not have Greek life, yet Columbia is proud of that. Student life is so rich with activities, organizations, clubs, and events that Greek life is pretty unnecessary. You won't be disappointed. Community is something Columbia does very, very well.

Residence Life promotes community-building activities that Resident Assistants are in charge of in every dorm. Each week, each month, and each season, RAs are working their tails off to bring their floor together to build a rich and thriving community on their floor. Activities include everything from trips to the Field Museum to Sunday Sundaes.
