Columbia State Community College Reviews
Columbia State was the perfect size for me-- not too big and not too small. Everyone is friendly and the staff are incredible. All classes are within a short walk of each other and the facilities are well-maintained. The campus is simple yet beautiful. If you are looking for a local-feeling, practical and affordable education then Columbia State is the place to go!
The instructors are knowledgeable and actually enjoy teaching. I had two instructors that stood out. Mr.Johnson my former speech teacher was always positive and motivated me to further my educational goals. Then Ms.Manns was my African American Literature instructor. Her enthusiasm for African American Literature was infectious and made me want to know more. She also encouraged me to further my education. I will never forget their encouraging words of wisdom!
I loved the staff at Columbia State Community College. I attended CSCC for several years and the staff as a whole are the most caring people. They will do anything to help you succeed and will help you in absolutely any way possible. There isn't anything I would like to see Columbia State change, as I had the best experience there!
