I felt like I was home
Liberal students, professors that care for most part, average food and housing. The academics are good, awesome honors program, friendly staff, and small class sizes are a plus. However, it feels like you're missing a part of the college experience with the absence of party culture, sports, and sororities.
It is a good small women's college. It is expensive for an international student like me. There is good contact between professors and students. Off campus housing is not so good as the school does not have apartments available around. Our choices as students are narrowed down a lot and sometimes we are not giving much options( in terms of living off campus, having a meal plan, e.t.c) which could be difficult for a student.
I just finished my first year and I cannot wait to get back in the fall. I love the school and the class sizes along with all of the extra activities offered on campus. The week before finals is always exciting because there are different activities planned for students to take a break and have some fun.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Columbia College-Columbia, SC is 87%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
The advice that I would give myself as a high school senior if I was able to go back in time would be, prepare yourself for college life mentally and financially. I would have advised myself to seek out more scholarships and grants and to utilize student loans as a last resort. My main concern would be school first and then concentrate on work after I've obtained my career. I started at a technical college which allowed me to save money. I obtained two Associates Degrees and decided to further my education to obtain a Bachelor's. My goal after obtaining my Associate's Degree was to land a job making a lot of money. I lost focus of my goals of furthering my education to obtain a higher degree. I don't regret the way that my life has turned out. I'm happy with my life; my husband and my two daughters that I am setting an example for. I trust and believe that I am where I should be; majoring in Behavioral Science. Obtaining this degree is more meaningful now that I can ever began to imagine.
The women of Columbia College are committed, confident, courageous, and competent.
They have a great program for Physical Therapy Assistant Program and they are determine to give their students the best education they can give.
I have to say the worst thing about Columbia College is the food. It's not necessarily the food itself, but the lack of variety and the hours of operation. Due to being a small college, our cafeteria is only open certain hours. Being an athlete, it is very difficult to get a meal after practice or a game. Due the number of students enrolled, there is not a need for a wide variety of food. Our cafeteria is not equal to one at a larger university where there are many many choices.
Columbia College is focused on their students. We are treated as individuals and not as numbers. The teachers and staff build a rapport and know you by name.
My school is best known for its strong leadership roles for women.
We are unique because we are an all girls College in the middle of a really rough neighborhood. The students on our campus know where we are and we still take pride in our school. This school is big on nuturing friendships and making sure that we as students become better people education, mentally, physically, and spiritually wise. We look out for each other everyday.
Well, if you are a girl, this would be the best college to attend since this is an all girls school. Boys can attend here too, but only during the evening classes. There are not many courses to take here, but if you do want to go to this college, business, economics, law, and others around that field are predominate at this school. I'll have to admit to you however, that this was not my first choice in finding a college, but I am very glad that I did come to this school.
The most frustrating thing about my school is the financial aid. It is often difficult to understand, obtain, and has frequent changes throughout the semester.
I wish I had known how to search for and secure more scholarships. Had I known more, I would have left college with less debt.
My school is very diverse.
Someone who likes big schools.
Someone who like partying.
Someone who wants to have a lot of on campus activities.
Someone who enjoys sports and attending sports activities.
