Days on Campus gives you the opportunity to get a taste of Columbia life, and one of the best ways to see what it’s really like is by asking real Columbia students their opinions of the University. Here are a handful of questions you might want to ask while you’re on campus.
- What is your favorite thing about Columbia?
- What do you not like about Columbia?
- Knowing what you know about the school now, would you still have chosen Columbia?
- How do you feel about the food here?
- What do Columbia students generally do on weekends?
- What do you wish you had known going into your first year here?
- Where do you hang out most often?
- What has your experience been with housing?
- Do you feel supported academically and socially by the University?
- Can you add me to columbia buy sell memes?
Current students are likely to give you an honest answer to any of the questions you ask, but also remember to be critical—everyone’s experience at the school is different, so just because one person you asked had a bad experience here doesn’t mean you will. Regardless, hearing firsthand opinions about Columbia can help you decide whether or not CU is for you.
