I love the small classroom sizes and the way the professors help each individual to succeed. I have been a day, evening, and online student. I personally enjoy a hybrid of evening and online the best so I can work during the day and still get lecture time to explain things better. Also, as an evening student the books are included in the tuition so no hidden fees! I would say most class sizes are a 1:13 ratio for evening campus. I feel like there are many intermediate steps in each class to make sure a person can really understand the concepts and assignments. I love this school! My heart will always be with CC!

I‘ve always excelled academically, and made the highest SAT score in high school. Tested with an iq surpassing 145 at 13 years of age, I felt out of place with peers, due to them feeling threatened by my cultured upbringing. Despite bullying, I excelled in reading, writing, and creative art as outlets for healthy expression. When I met the man that became my husband, my life was thrown in upheaval as he was verbally and emotionally abusive to me from the beginning, and became increasingly abusive. Homeless since February 2014, I am currently residing in a domestic violence shelter. One huge aspect of healing is to finish my Bachelor's in Psychology. Columbia College has been very gracious, compassionate, and accommodating for me to enter their program after all this hardship.
Columbia College offers quality education and the benefit of smaller classes and easier access to professors. The main campus is located in Columbia, Missouri as well offering online courses. I have had the opportunity to take both day classes and classes online. Online classes include books in the tuition so there aren't additional costs. It is a growing college that is striving to make improvements and additions. They are currently adding more residence dorms and classrooms for the business programs. They have added several new sports and the students and staff promote and support the programs. One challenge that continues to be an issue is the food. Changes have been tried but it is still often disappointing. If you are looking for a small campuses with a quality education, Columbia College is a good choice.
