| Columbia college is located in a forest like area and centered around a 4 1/2 acre lake used by our science department for research. The school is not very handicap friendly due to its nature of hills but of course the school is compliant with state requirements, we even have a teacher who is permanently situated in a wheel chair and seems to get by fine. My school offers a wide variety of degrees and certificates. Were known for our science, fire, and foods programs. All the staff are great and because we have small student to teacher ratios, there is always time for some one on one with your teacher. |
Columbia college has a great atmosphere, its very free and flowing. Our school does not have many sports but if you wish to join some you can be concurrently enrolled in modesto jr college, our sister school. Though our resources academically seem to be restricted the school has access to all the resources of modesto jr college as well free of cost for students.
Our school also offers a variety of programs including tutoring, supplement instruction, and group studies for free. I have enjoyed the last 2 years at columbia and look forward to the next 2 more years i have here before transferring to a UC or CSU, Columbia college has transfer programs to every 4 year college in the state of California. Columbia college also provides dormitories for (5,000-8,000 a year) on campus. *note however Columbia college does not approve, own, or run the dorms; they are own by a property management company.

| Collumbia College is surrounded by nature, with beautiful trees and winding paths all through it. It's a very low-key school where friends are easy to find,although there's not much of a nightlife and the area has a very small town atmosphere. People there are friendly, even kind, and that's rare in this modern world. One gets the sense that the faculty and staff are truly interested in the well-being of the students. If you are looking for a place to start out your education without feeling overwhelmed by the competition and crowding of a larger school, this is a good place to attend. |
