Columbia State Community College Reviews
Almost all of the classes at Columbia State have been online during COVID-19. My online experience was pretty good. Of course the key with any online learning experience is to both attend and pay attention in class and stay on top of the assignments, but the professors do a good job reminding students what is due when and what their expectations are for each assignment. You come across the occasional technologically challenged teacher but all the professors put in a good effort to make learning via Zoom good. All of my professors know that online learning can be difficult for some students and will work with them if they are struggling with something.
I have found that during my time at Columbia State has been pretty successful thanks to the facility and advisor willing to put in the time and effort when working with their students. However, I have found that it seems to be a little unorganized when it comes to administrations office having students information caring over from semester to semester. Other then that I have really enjoyed my time at this campus and working with my professor whom have been so willing to extend a hand and help whenever asked. I will mention that I have attended the University of TN at Chattanooga and compared to that university Columbia State has been a walk in the park when asking for help and or needing information. I hope to continue my education at this campus by attending their two year nursing program after I complete this degree.
My experience at Columbia State has been pretty amazing. Everyone is so helpful with anything you need. Also staff is just so friendly! They have really helped me go through college smoothly. I took this route cause my first two years would be free and it has helped me out so much! They have free tutoring for any student that it is struggling and it has helped me out greatly! I will be transferring next semester after I graduate in May and it has been such a good two years and I couldn't be any more grateful for this school! The only thing they could change is parking because sometimes parking was unavailable because there were a lot of students!
