I have had a great experience at Columbia State. The professors for my classes were engaging with their students, avid about teaching students, having them learn the content of the courses more than having us memorize material just to pass a test. The tuition is also affordable. I was also able to choose classes around my work schedule, which helped immensely! I am very glad I went there.

My experience at Columbia State Community College during the summer semester of 2017-2018 was an success! My instructors were great, willing to help, and also pushed me to believe in myself. Your success is based upon your dedication,determination, and at the end of the day its up to you. I am thankful for such caring staff and I completed my two Statistic courses with A averages! I am proud.
I attended Columbia State Community College from 2016-2017. Overall, I had an amazing experience. The faculty and staff were all so welcoming, friendly, and helpful. Whenever an issue arose or if I ever needed help, I knew I could count on them to guide me. The classes were taught by interesting and knowledgeable professors. The school's atmosphere was one of acceptance and southern hospitality. The classes were held at an appropriate level of difficulty. I never felt overwhelmed or as if they expected the impossible of me. I enjoyed the year and a half that I spent there, and I would recommend this school to anyone in the Tennessee area looking to attend a Community College.
