I really enjoy the guidance that the teachers provide. In a lot of classes, many of my professors have done their best to make sure that the work given is something engaging and allows us to be creative in our own way.
I haven't been here long, but I've heard the dorms are not great, I recommend asking other students.
You will find many students that are serious as you in your field of study and that is what I like - I like students that share the same interests as me in my field of study.
I do find it hard to make friends because I learned the hard way that not everybody wants to be your friend. So you may find yourself lonely at times.
The curriculum is very involved, and your professors will always have you working on something to improve your skills. All of the professors I've had thus far have been actively involved in their fields.
Leadership often doesn't respond to concerns or complaints of faculty or students.
I think the professors are what I like about Columbia, they're usually very friendly and understanding. The buildings are close by each other. The classes are actually very nice, and there are support teams if you need them.
I think probably knowing the area gets you feeling anxious. You get an alert from Columbia about the crime that happens around the school, so It puts you on alert and scared knowing what's happening.
The dorms are beautiful. The professors are very experienced and very helpful when it comes to connecting students with job opportunities.
Nothing. I love the school.
I love the environment and being in the city while also pursuing something I love! It feels nice to have so much support and so many connections all in one place!
Since you are in the middle of the city and not in a college town, the experience is different than typical college towns. Getting around took a while to get used to the new environment.
