The Student Handbook
Welcome! From the Vice President of Student Affairs
If you are a fully engaged student at Columbia who is taking advantage of all of the events, experiences, resources, and passionate faculty and staff available to you, then you will have a productive and, even exhilarating, academic and personal journey at Columbia College Chicago.
Columbia is also a large and complex institution. Therefore, we have created this student handbook to help you navigate the Columbia experience. This guide is a compilation of people, places, and activities. Let me also remind you of the 9 Principles for Student Success, which act as your compass. If you live the principles outlined below, you will reach your goals.
- Form Your Creative Posse
- Live Intellectually
- Tap the Creative Energy Around You
- Support Your Systems
- Embrace Diversity
- Be Informed
- Live What You Love
- Create Your Body of Work
Embrace the Principles. Use all of the resources available to you. Become a fully engaged student.
