“The absolute best part of Columbia is the Core. I love that the centerpiece of our school spirit is academic and that every student is an active part of this. I love that I could walk into Carman and starting talking to anyone in the elevator about Dante, Austen or Cervantes, and that it encourages us to approach our academic life together as a community of learners. The small, intimate environment of the Core spreads to other classes, so professors can quote Plato and expect us to understand it, even in other disciplines. I definitely underestimated the extent to which the Core enriches the depth of discussion in a really meaningful way.”
