The University has many options and provides all kind of facilities for students.

I'm in Columbia University and I'm very satisfied with my education. The workload is hard and continues but it prepares you in a way that the student will be ready to deal with the real world once complete the degree.
The instructors and staff are very helpful and involved with the students.
It is an amazing school!

We have public subways, taxis and buses that run 24/7.
College Sophomore 2013-08-03T03:42:10Z
I prefer to walk everywhere, but if the destination is over 30 blocks then the subway is always running and easy to use. If you don't want to wait for the mass transit, there are taxis everywhere that can be hailed or contacted via phone or computer.

There are so many options to eat an NYC! One of the major must-dos when at Columbia is Coronets, where pizza slices are bigger than your head. There is also an amazing hungarian pastry shop on amsterdam where students flock to study at, along with many other cafes. Although the quality isn't amazing, there is the famous Tom's Restaurant, also known as "Tom's Diner" from Seinfeld.

The city life is awesome! It is easy to walk or take the subway to a variety of places, such as East Village, Washington Heights, or Union Square. While living in NYC is expensive, it is definitely worth it. Shopping and eating at all hours of the day and night are available, and there are loads of opportunities for cultural, musical, and sports events.

As far as Ivy sports go, Columbia is pretty decent. But let's face it- we go here for the academics, not the sports. While there is team spirit present, our best abilities lie in fencing and archery, not football like most traditional colleges.

Columbia is in the heart of NYC, the best city to study in with an abundance of culture.
Recent Alumnus 2013-07-31T20:38:32Z
The weather is alright. Gorgeous fall and spring and even winter, but summers can be unbearably hot and humid.

Health & Safety:
I always feel very safe on campus and I always feel the presence of Columbia police and safety guards.

Guys & Girls:
It's New York, so not only are you getting the smartest students anywhere but also the most attractive and best dressed.

I love the change in seasons but I know others may be impacted by the cold weather.
Recent Alumnus 2013-07-29T17:01:50Z
Columbia makes a very active effort to attract qualified students from everywhere in the world.
Recent Alumnus 2013-07-29T16:58:34Z
Many students are very focused and are more interested in studying than partying.

Great neighborhood in upper west side/ morningside heights.
College Junior 2013-07-28T18:48:07Z
Great Diversity, many students from all backgrounds and cultures. Many international students as well.

The financial aid office is a scary place. The process as a whole is ok, the people are nice, but trying to understand the statement they send is a little mystifying. I've had to ask several times what certain items are and how they have calculated them. They are slow to respond, but eventually get around to it. You just need to stay on top of it all.
College Senior 2013-07-27T11:48:47Z
The buildings at Columbia University are really unique in that they are architecrally pleaseing to look at which gives the campus a very traditional feel. The athletice facilities are well equiped and have been recently upgraded. Lots to do if you chose to do it. ....

Usually unpaid, but usually means I'm working with great people.
College Sophomore 2013-07-23T02:26:54Z
It's a continuing process, even after months of paperwork.
College Senior 2013-07-20T20:53:50Z
Typical four season location; so we have everything from snow to uncomfortable heat, including the very pleasant temperatures of fall and spring. Buildings are easy to get between, so inclement weather doesn't affect ability to make it to class, dining halls, or library.

New York City is constantly buzzing with an endless amount of things to do, see, and taste. There is a lot of free fun, like fairs, parades, certain museums, and campus performances and sporting events. And of course there is all of the city if you are willing to pay for it - Broadway, shopping, restaurants, sports (lets go Jets!) and best of all great public transportation to get around to everything. The local community is comprised of so many students and young professionals that I always feel a positive atmosphere towards students. I've rarely felt unsafe, but it's partially because I ascribe to safety in numbers and comfortable neighborhoods at night.

I'm in the medical school. Dr Nicholas the Dean of Admissions is amazing.
College Sophomore 2013-07-20T04:50:04Z
It's college in the Northeast. It's going to be rainy or snowy often, but you don't have to drive in the snow. Just buy rain boots and a good umbrella and deal with it.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
