Extended information

Why did you choose Columbia College?

For me, it was the right combination of prestige, price and academic reputation. There were schools that were more affordable, but didn't have the reputation of Columbia. There were more reputable choices, but I've gotten a year worth of classes for the cost of one class at the bigger out-of-state schools.

What are your plans for the future?

I will finish my Bachelor's degree in History and use it to become a high school social studies teacher.

What was your favorite course, and why?

My favorite course to date has been Middle East cultural studies because of the amount of information that was brand new to me. The information is very relevant today because of the extent of our dealings with Middle Eastern countries and I feel more prepared for the real world because of it.

Is there anyone you would like to thank?

I would like to thank my Wife and fellow Columbia student Lisa for putting up with me around mid-term and final times and watching our three crazy kids while I attempt to get homework done. I could not have done it without her.
