What is your overall opinion of this school?

Columbia College Chicago is a wonderful school for the liberal arts. The curriculum is unlike any other school and teaches students the skills of today's artistic industries. With the campus right in the heart of downtown Chicago, there's always something to do. It's unlike any traditional college experience and is wonderful for creatives looking to be challenged and pursue their passions.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Columbia has change over the course of time that I’ve been there. They need to reconnect to diversity training and resources. They have not hired a new lgbt office coordinator since the last two resigned, and there is a need for more diverse student resources. Overall it’s a very artistic school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall I have so far enjoyed Columbia College Chicago. I feel that for commuters it is hard to be involved with the community who lives on campus. Also trying to get information about classes, loans, housing, etc. it can be very confusing. They will send you all over the place to answer one question. Also, they have changed major requirements so you should always keep in contact with your counsler. Classes are gernerally well taught and overall enjoyable.

Best school ever in terms of Arts, I love it. I am very happy I chose to attend this college. It is located downtown Chicago, near museums, there is a lot of places to go in Chicago. Summer festivities are the best. Ethnic food from all over the world.

Overall, Columbia College Chicago is a great school for creatives. The endless opportunities for collaboration with other students is definitely one of the best perks of this college. Also, you have access to professional style equipment to make beautiful art.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Columbia is a good school, that is a definite. Of course I have some conflicting opinions, like the people can be a bit...out there. For me, that's odd, but others may find that great! You learn to get used to it nonetheless. Also, I don't drink, so that tends to cause a bit of a rift with other students. Overall, if you're looking for a good education in your artistic field, this is a great pick, I promise.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

During my education at Columbia College Chicago, I really enjoy the overall atmosphere of the school and feel as though the college really fits my needs as a student as well as a professional in my chosen field of study. Not only do my teachers push me in my skills, but other students do as well. The academic and artistic environment that Columbia provides has really developed my understanding for my future career.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Columbia College Chicago is an immensely artistic school. Their endless expression, various ways of expressing and love of making their individual voices louder is amazing. But for the cost? Not at all. CCC has a way of creating expenses without giving you a reason to where everything is going and why. They often charge you for something you never asked for and make shattered promises of getting back to you on it. Even the college's president (not the student) tiptoes around solidified answers to the institute's unreasonable fees at half-hour "Open Discussion with the President" events. Issues such as: an increase in students' tuitions, decrease in staff payments, and an unidentified (also never asked for) building where all these mysterious funds are coming from. Nevertheless, Columbia College Chicago does supply its students with great opportunities. The atmosphere itself can be nice (although a little racially biased among their students). Once a similar view in the love and passion for art is seen within others, the barriers such as race and social class begins to break. Issues such as those as well aren't addressed at the school but community events are mere solutions. Columbia College Chicago has its perks and pushes. Many of which are spoken of within campus without concrete solutions. CCC can come off as a welcoming community, but without art and its opportunities, there is really no telling how this school wouldn't fall apart.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Columbia a lot. It is a very diverse campus and a lot of the majors within the film department work together on projects. This is great because when making movies, it feels like a professional setting, you have to go to each department and find your team. I wouldn't want to go to college anywhere else!
