Everyone from the students to the faculty and staff at Columbia College is so friendly! I find every class worth attending and the content stimulating, and there are several school-sanctioned events every month in which students are invited to participate. As a small, Liberal-Arts college, Columbia College seems to be one of the lesser-known presences in Columbia, Missouri, but there is an undeniable presence of the students in the community. Also, every one of the professors has a vested interest in the students' successes, which I find quite reassuring as I pursue my degree here.
Not only is everyone helpful, but I feel at ease knowing that payments, scheduling, and even getting a response in a timely manner is not an issue. My focus is on school and the advisors are truly there to help! Best online school I have ever got too!
Favorite experience is hand on learning, in seat, because you are meeting new people and learning different cultures while educating self in a classroom setting. What makes Columbia College unique are the Professors and Financial Aid Advisor's no question is too big nor too small, they seem to have all the answers and will walk you through it. I wouldn't chose another college because the ratings of graduates proves that the Instructors are professionally equipped and well-educated to teach the students the course studies for which they applied.
