Is Columbia Right for You?

"Loved View Day! Fun, great info, very friendly."


Come meet us in person! One of the best ways to see if Columbia is the right fit for you is to join us on campus for a day (or two!) Sign up for a View Day/Evening and you'll have the chance to tour Columbia's six-acre campus, meet some of our friendly staff and faculty, hear from current students, and ask all your questions. We also host personalized tours if you're not able to make it to a scheduled View Event. Either way, we're excited to meet you and help you discover Columbia up close.
