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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Columbia is an incredible college for those who can beat the less than six percent acceptance rate. That being said, don't bee discouraged by this number, and apply! It can be a very competitive environment at times, but it's all what you make of it, as with anything. Those who get in are glad to be here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great school. The faculty puts great emphasis on familiarizing the students with the typical daily life of an Ivy League student. The curriculum is very demanding, however, the educational experience is one of a kind. I am a returning students, thus GS, and feel very welcomed and integrated. Columbia embraces diversity among their students and faculty. You'll find people from all over the world. It is an amazing experience to be able to get to know so many different cultures, religions, and languages. Everyone is very welcoming, so no one feels like "they don't belong". There is a spot for everyone and that is what I think makes Columbia so unique.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The location of the school is great and perhaps the most important factor. There are plenty of things to do and they suit a variety of interest may that be academically or socially. Opportunities for social outing also ranges from a quiet time at the park to fun night outs in the city.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Columbia University is a great school. There are two undergraduate schools: Columbia College (the school I attended) and the Fu Foundation for Engineering and Applied Science. While the College was rigorous and text-heavy, I can say I came out a much brighter individual. From class conversations to complex texts, my Human Rights major allowed me to explore the intersections of many different fields at the same time. There were always social events to attend (though sometimes harder to find events for people of color) and the resources available to me where abundant. I recommend it to any students ready to challenge themselves and push their personal growth.
