I loved how much some of the professors cared about each student personally and wished for them to succeed and helped to the best of their ability.
Some professors didn't communicate well and caused the whole class to be left clueless and not do well.
I liked the smallness of Columbia State and the way advisors reach out to help you with your academic goals! They are eager to help you finish as well as to see you continue your education and transfer (which is what I am doing!).
However, I did NOT like the way some students viewed their classes and professors. Sometimes they were disrespectful and did not put their best effort into their studies. College is for learning!
What I liked most about attending Columbia State Community College was that for the most part you would see everyone on a daily basis, wether you had classes together or you would see them on the way the class. The atmosphere was very friendly and it was very easy to make friends and myself personally I have built life time friendships with students I never would have met if it was not for Columbia State. Another plus being its not that big of a college so for the most part everyone knows the majority of the students that go there and if you had seen one person walking through the halls, the next semester you would be more likely to have that person in one of your classes and get to know them. It makes the college experience alot easier as getting to know people can be a challenge at times.
What I did not like was that when I graduated High school and started to Columbia State, they did not have alot of course options for me to chose from and that was very disheartening. I believe now they have alot more to chose from so they have worked and gotten better at the course they provide, but at the time I first attended (2015) the class options was very limited and you really had to pick which classes seemed the most interesting to you.
