What is your overall opinion of this school?

Great school, consistently rated one of the top schools in the nation and for good reason. Only thing the school is lacking is social life and school spirit. Outside of Greek Life and a couple of clubs it's hard to branch out and make new friends. Also students can be overly competitive, but it makes sense for them to be because it's likely how they got into Columbia.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of Columbia University in the City of New York is the University is good. There's the allure of New York City which is just a hop, skip, and a jump away. There is always something to do here at Columbia. The resources are out there you just have to find them. Also, the academics are top-notch, I would say Columbia is just as competitive as any other University in the world. The down-side is the price of admission I don't believe that the price of admission is worth the name the University is.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Honestly, best decision I made was to come here. The campus is beautiful and academics are certainly the number one priority. I am constantly challenged and supported not only by professors but by my peers and advisors. There is also always an event or lecture to attend which adds to the academic experience.

It has a rather small campus but the amount of services and resources offered by the institution makes up for that.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I've had some really good professors, but I've also had some really bad professors, and whether I liked the classes or not depended mostly on them. Outside of class, however, I really enjoy life at Columbia. There are plenty of groups on campus to get involved in, and if they're not your thing you can start you own. If you don't want to do that either, well, you're still in New York City, so you can hop on the subway and pop up in times Square a half-hour later. Whatever you want to do, opportunity abounds if you're willing to seek it out.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think the school is great, I like the student life and the city environment. I hope to one day go to that school. the life is good the community is amazing their is always an opportunity to involved in it. the metropolitan area makes it easier for students to move around the city and explore. life is more than just the school, college life is about the adventurous activities as well.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I could not be more excited to be attending Columbia!! I don't start until the fall, but in my visits I have fallen in love with this school. For me, the most distinctive quality is the balance between an intimate liberal arts education and the resources of a big city. Classes are very small, and we are able to work closely with professors and students across a variety of disciplines - however, we are immersed in a diverse, globalized, intellectual environment with every opportunity in the world. There is nothing you can't do at Columbia. Soooooo excited to be going here in the fall! #roar2022

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As a master's student in Columbia's History and Literature program, my experience is a little different from most. That said, even though I don't attend school at the New York City campus, I love being a Lion. My program, which is at Columbia's Global Center in Paris, France, is intimate and involved, with rigorous coursework and amazing opportunity. Every day, I get to wake up to a view of the Eiffel Tower, walk through the beautiful French streets to my tiny classroom in a little building in the sixth, and learn about the ways History and Literature work together to change our world. It may not be New York, but I have to say, I'm not really complaining.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great school and offers a lot of opportunities for self-growth and development but it is a bit unorganized. At times professors do not seem to have a set agenda for class and the Sybil's is constantly changing. The reading material is insightful and it will help you learn about your practice, but is at times overwhelming. The majority of the classes are discussions based so you will always be prepared to contribute to the class if you read for that week. Many discussions also steer away from the readings and encourage students to incorporate their own personal experiences to relate to the readings. You will find yourself spending most of your weekends doing school work and preparing for your internship instead of fully relaxing and destressing from school. The professors, though unorganized at times, are always willing to make time and meet with you after class. There are scheduled office hours but if you need to meet outside of those hours, the professors change their schedules to fit you in. You will meet a lot of great people who are willing to help you with school work and talk to you about things. The facilities such as the libraries provide a great place for studying and finding quiet spots to focus. Overall it is a great environment to learn but it is somewhat unorganized.
