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.
Review Columbia College - Missouri
I am currently attending Columbia Colleges online campus. The format is easy and well organized. Eight-week sessions go quicker than expected and the content of the classes has helped me to learn about the subjects I'm studying. The professors are helpful and available. My advisor responds quickly and keeps me on the right track. I love Columbia College!
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!
