Behind the Stat
A mascot as unique as our students. You matter and you're one of a kind.
“You are not just a number here. As a small school, you will know everyone on campus and they will know you. The faculty and staff care about you and your well-being.”

Straight from our students
The friendships I've made feel more like a family bond. They're like a home away from home.
"I wanted something different. Not one of these big universities . . . but something small. I saw more opportunities for myself at Columbia College!”
"My favorite thing about being a Koala is becoming a part of the family and being accepted by everyone!”
Best of Both
