Meet Our Students

Mary B. at Homecoming

Mary B.

From the Lions Mouth: 
“The Core teaches you how to be able to present your ideas and be able to look at topics from many different viewpoints and I believe that these are crucial skills to have in any field of study. The technical engineering education that you get from Columbia Engineering is greatly enhanced by the liberal arts focus of the Core Curriculum and is truly unique to the Columbia experience.”
