ACADEMIC ORIENTATION VIA THE PRINCETON REVIEW

Columbia University, the Ivy League's New York City office, has been around for more than 250 years, providing prestige, rigorous academics, a strong alumni network, and a multitude of opportunities to its students. As intimate spaces carved out of the larger university, Columbia College and The Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science throw a "vast amount of resources" at its students, with benefits that "extend from clubs to study abroad programs [to]…proximity to one of the greatest cities in the world." Columbia is "all about building intelligent [and] confident students who are ready for the workplace," and there are "many opportunities to satiate intellectual curiosity." The school's Core Curriculum ensures students leave with a breadth of knowledge, and "everyone is smart in some way."
