Columbia College - California Reviews

158 reviews

There are certain professors that are helpful and create a good learning environment, and others who do not. There is generally very little interaction among students and outside of classes. Their class selection is very small, and the hardest part of being here is building a schedule from the one or two offerings of each class. The course catalog is large, but make sure you look at what is going to be offered in the next two years. Overall, this school is great for saving money before transferring, and for returning students. If you aren't looking for the social aspect of college, this is the place for you.

Columbia is a good starting point in college. The classes and professors provided do a good job of making you feel welcomed and ready to begin your college career. The campus is beautiful to walk through, unfortunately, the walks through the campus from the parking lot feel like they last forever. Only complaints would be the poor parking availability and the distance from parking to the classes. Other than that Columbia is a nice school to attend to get your work done and move on to a university or start your career in the job world. Overall Columbia is an enjoyable and convenient school to attend.
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.
