  • Great libraries, well thought out and structured courses, experienced professors, intelligent students from varied backgrounds and great networking opportunities; overall a great atmosphere for anyone seeking an enlightening learning experience!
  • Scheduled a tour and info session, traveled from Midwest and were casually told the tour guides were busy with something else, so we would only get the info session. Beautiful campus revealed during self-guided tour, but felt like the info session portrayed how exclusive they are...i.e., we need them more than they need us. Daughter still interested, but liked much better how Barnard and NYU treated us.
  • By far the best of the ivy league universities. Brilliant students, with brilliant professors all on a beautiful campus in New York City. It is great to be able to walk everywhere, no bikes or cars needed. Endless opportunities here. Excitement everywhere.
  • I am a columbia alumni and i would just like to say Columbia's institution has wonderful tile flooring in the girls bathroom. It really contrasts well with the mahogany shower curtains. The library books are well maintained, the pages are very crisp, and smell of a faint honey-dew lemon. I do not have a single complaint. All in all, I've had had a pleasant experience. They're ColumbiAWESOME if i do say so myself.
  • Mechanic engineering department is highly unorganized and unclear in guiding students. Responses are very slow and I've found I nearly miss deadliest as a result. Good research opportunities and brilliant professors. Great networking opportunities with the business school.
