Overall Experience: you get what you put into your education

Overall Experience: It was a great experience, on hands participation with in the tour which I like the most. All teachers and volunteer students gave us presentations that were very clear and broad to better understand what I was getting into.. I also like the fact that school is small which will help much to interact with teachers and other excisting students. I feel that this is going to be an adventure and a challenging experience which will make me more of a strong candidate for future employments with in the filming/production industry. Adding to this last statement, it is a school that interacts with big filming and production companies, that will also help to set me up for innership purposes and gain experience.. And I would apply again if I had to choose all over again.

Best Regards!

Off-Campus Housing: It is better to get a roommate.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: People throw a lot of house parties at the dorms and everyone from the school comes by to hang out and party.

5 College Junior

Scholarships: Applying for Financial Aid was a very easy process. The financial aid office made the process very simple and easy. They were very hands on to make sure everyone did everything correctly.

5 College Junior

Local Area: You are ten minutes from the beach, an hour from snowy mountains, five hours from Las Vegas, there is DisneyLand, Universal Studios Hollywood, baseball games, basketball games, and hockey games all within a thirty mile radius. The atmosphere here and around the school is great.

Diversity: The school has a very diverse background of students from all different areas and walks of life. They have students that are from as far as Bangladesh and Korea and as close as Los Angeles. No one at the school is looked at differently for their beliefs or the way they carry themselves. It is a huge family.

1 College Senior

Party Scene: Loser central. I don't think they'd know how to throw a party if a YouTube video hit them in the head and Epic Meal time pop'd out to show them.

Its a craft school, students that go to CCH usually are busy making films and when they're not, I don't know what they are doing.
There is NO sense of community at the school, at least for myself. Its saddening.

5 College Senior

Parking: Its the old Panavision building, so they had a nice sized parking lot for there employees, when CCH took over the lot, they purchased the lot next door which was a parking lot so students could safely park in the back of the facility. One of the few smart moves on the schools part. If you stay in the OVERPRICED student housing options, you can easily walk to school or take the shuttle that comes 30-40mins prior to your class period.

No tickets or fines. Security guard on duty before and after school hours so no need to worry about the safety of your vehicle. There are also cameras so your extra "safe."

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Its a film school, you'll find all sorts of looks and personalities, usually that reflect of the genre there most interested in.

"I didn't go to film school to rate my peers looks and physical characteristics, I went to film school to be apart of a creative force behind positive aw inspiring films and movements that have encourage community, friendship, and living a free positive lifestyle. So to "GRADE" my peers just seems disrespectful to there character."

On that note, I can make the comment that. "If you see a hot girl on campus, she's probably there for a casting call." Due to the fact that the film business is dominantly male driven, so is the school. There isn't a lot of female options and they're usually swiped up quickly if they are "good looking."

Majors: The application process was very simple. If I remember correctly I needed two refernce letters, and entry essay, a resume, and official transcripts. Obtaining the transcripts from the few schools I have attended was the most difficult and time consuming part. Once all requirements have been met the prospective student interviews with a school counselor and will let them know if they have been accepted or not. Pleae note: this process may have changed since my admission.

Off-Campus Dining: With CCH being so close to Ventura Blvd, you're never far from anything you want to eat; whether it is fast food, coffee and pastries or ethnic cuisine.

5 College Senior

Academics: Top Quality and they strive for the best or get us the best

4 College Senior

Academics: Teacher's are top notch, the newer instructors aren't always the right fit for that particular class.

4 College Junior

Majors: I have not had an internship yet but there is a big department dedicated to helping students find one and there is a bulletin board full of open spots. They are usually credit only but are an invaluable experience.

3 College Junior

Transportation: Most campus housing is within walking distance and for the one that is not there is a free shuttle to take you back and forth. Sometimes you have to wait a while but it is there.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Columbia College's facilities are excellent, while there facilities aren't huge, they are constantly expanding and are almost obsessive on keeping up to date and to the industry standard. The goal is to keep the College to Studio Transitional learning curve down and they seem to do a very good job at it.

5 College Sophomore

Transportation: The School is literally right across the street from the Metro, and if you don't have a car to get to school, there is a shuttle that picks up students on a daily schedule.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Guys and Girls come from all over the U.S and the World, it is a very diverse group of students and every guy and girl has at least one thing in common, so that's a great way to start up a conversation/relationship. Hang around in the lobby all day and you'll run across a wide range of interesting people, and make some unique friends.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: Several safe and secure apartment complexes are available close to campus, and the school housing office assists (and recommends) comfortable rental units to students. They also have a relationship with apartment rental offices in the area.
