Whether you are a varsity athlete or just an avid sports fan, Columbia has a proud history of achievement. An original member of the Ivy League. 31 NCAA Division I teams and 40+ club and intramural sports. 7 Ivy League Championship teams in the last year alone. Several Columbia Olympians and Olympic medalists, past and present. As former NFL player Marcellus Wiley (CC '97) declares, "Columbia is the greatest university in the world, in the greatest city in the world."
“Columbia undergraduates aren't afraid to ask the big questions. They want to know 'why' as well as 'what.' And those are the kinds of questions that are best answered through discussion, so it's always a challenge being in a classroom with them. ”
