Many of the college’s 1,700 full- and part-time faculty mem- bers are working professionals (artists, writers, filmmakers, dancers, journalists, entrepreneurs, etc.) with national reputa- tions. They are gifted, award-winning instructors who share prac- tical expertise with students both in the classroom and in informal workshops. Interaction with these practicing professionals pro- vides our students with access to invaluable insight, viewpoints, and industry-current aesthetics, as well as allowing them to begin building their own network of industry connections and contacts. Outside the classroom, Columbia students participate in our more than 85 clubs and organizations, and take active roles in our award-winning student newspaper, the college’s radio sta- tion, multiple student magazines, a cable television soap opera, theater productions, dance concerts, photography and art exhibits, and a film and video festival.
