“As a Columbia student walking around Morningside Heights, it can easily feel like everything (even stores and newsstands) were strategically placed there just for you. From as far from campus as 90th street, there are Columbia University T-shirts on sale; this, amongst other things, makes one feel like a part of a recognized New York community.”

The Columbia experience is not only a classroom experience, but an experience of the city of New York itself. (youtube video)

The Columbia experience is not only a classroom experience, but an experience of the city of New York itself.

“Your Columbia experience is defined not only by what you learn from your faculty and peers, but also from the city itself. New York is a hotbed of opportunities and Columbia facilitates access to those advantages. On campus, I listened to lectures by my favorite architects Zaha Hadid and Michael Arad in the basement of Avery, saw Lance Armstrong speak at the World Leaders Forum in Low Library, caught a glimpse of Oprah Winfrey walking on 116th and Broadway and survived a line of screaming girls to see Johnny Depp speak at Miller Theater. ”

“Connecting with people very - or even slightly - different from ourselves stimulates the imagination; and when we learn to see the world through a multiplicity of eyes, we only make ourselves more nimble in mastering - and integrating - the diverse fields of knowledge awaiting us.”
