  • Columbia is a beautiful campus in the middle of the concrete jungle. It has a really nice architecture, and is full of lively student. It is worth stopping by if you are in the area.  more »
  • If you are around, I suggest you to take a view of the place that is usually full of students! Very nice!  more »
  • the American University was like. Couple sleeping on the lawn out,,,, come in looking for souvenirs, walking or are wearing hoodies or rolling, written with the Colombia University students and students from thick books to read while walking or sells goods such as Parker enters the University logo at Colombia University Bookstore or coffee mugs.

  • 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!
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Beautiful campus- feel free to wander around during sunset. However, take heed that the surrounding area is a ghetto.
  • I would love to go to this school in 2018. I hear they have a wonderful school system. I love their writing program that i have been hearing. I will look forward to coming hear when i am 18 years old. I love the academic standard.they have here. I would honestly say that i love the construction of the building it is so unique and well stabled.
