What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think Columbia is a great school for people looking to expand their mind, beliefs and art. It’s a very open school, everyone shares their opinions and never feel unsafe to voice how they feel about current issues. Even if they think others might have a different viewpoint teachers always open the conversation to opposing views. It’s also a great school to perfect your art and find careers suitable for your craft. Many people underestimate art schools and think all we do is draw and paint but it’s so much more and very challenging in a good way. As a journalism major I’m always getting experience in the field and being challenged to step out of my comfort zone.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a joke. Classes are designed for you to easily pass and to chug you along the assembly line, until you graduate. Faculty is questionable, Student Financial Services and College Advising is a joke. This whole school is a facade, it's a for profit, falsely claiming as a progressive and innovative school. Don't go to school here, save your money and get a real degree somewhere else.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

A lot of great things but a lot of bad things at the same time. Everything is on a spectrum. Some departments are very lacking and others and doing really well. The film department is greatly known for being very good and so far I've been enjoying it. I am a freshman going to my first college ever so I am not really like prefaced with what a college class looks like so I cant really weigh if its good or not. It's also my freshman year so I can understand the basic-ness and dislike to some of the right of the bat classes. Hopefully they improve because a lot of the classes I've taken so far I already knew a great deal they are teaching. It's a lot of beginner classes so if you are extremely proficient in one area then you might wanna consider a different school because they tend to start at the basics but for me its kinda good because I know a lot of the subjects i'm studying but i'm glad to be covering some ground I needed to refresh or didn't know everything about the basics. The classes are good and depending on your teacher either fun or boring as hell but in comparison to a lot of my friends classes who go to different schools I am pleased with the classes and subjects I have. All the work is basically project based and I really prefer that over essays and quizes so thats another perk. There is a lot of opportunity and you can get involved easy but you really do have to apply yourself for that. Cool locations. Not a lot of extra curricular but there is always a lot going on. No party scene really at all as well. So if you're looking for a wild frat party don't look at Columbia.

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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

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.

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.
