Columbia University

Columbia University

Founded in 1754, Columbia University in the City of New York is at once a small college and a major research university: an Ivy League education on a human scale. That means working in small classes and labs with pioneering faculty in every field from the classic to the cutting edge. It means being part of one of the most diverse student bodies in the world. It means our signature Core Curriculum along with stellar undergraduate research with world-renowned faculty. It means living in a city driven by the smartest, newest ideas. It means any pursuit, every opportunity is here.

What distinguishes Columbia?
