Columbia College - California Reviews
Many students thrive with different teaching styles- one student may love a teacher while another despises them. Columbia college has great professors, but they also have a selection that have been unsatisfying to my learning experience. Teaching style differs, so that should not be held against a college; however, Each time I come in to the AAC (Academic Achievement Center), they do not have a tutor for my course. This is understandable, but when a simple question is asked that they have no knowledge of, such as primary and secondary sources, is when I consider going somewhere else for tutoring. Overall, I give this beautiful college a 4 because I have learned immense amounts and have enjoyed every semester. This is home.
Although I've visited only a few times, Columbia certainly left a noteworthy impression. Not due to a wide range of things to offer, but from the lack thereof. Perhaps it was the large campus that would fool one into this expectation. There are areas of campus in which there's absolutely barren roads stretching along sloped hills, forcing one to have quite the trek in between classes. They had a large focus on very specific trades, but didn't have much to offer elsewhere. Overall, decent if it has what you want, but its otherwise unremarkable.
Columbia College is a quiet and peaceful community college situated in the Sierra Nevada foothills. The professors care about their students, and create a constructive learning environment. The campus is surrounded by beautiful pine forests, with world-class bouldering nearby. With invigorating classes, good people, and a beautiful location, Columbia College is golden.
