Student Life

You will find Student Life at Columbia College Chicago to be exciting and engaging. Student Life extends learning beyond the classroom through theory and practice laboratory experiences. We have designed programs to enhance the whole student and strengthen academic success.  The departments within the Student Life unit consists of: Student Communications, the Department of Exhibitions and Performance Student Spaces (DEPS), Student Programs and Activities (Student Activities, Student Organizations and Leadership, Fitness, Athletics, and Recreation, ShopColumbia, New Student Programs) and  Student Diversity and Inclusion.  

Our hope is that you will find our program offerings exciting as well as provide you many opportunities to be involved on campus.

I hope to see you around campus,

Kari Sommers
Associate Dean of Student Life
