Get a Feel for Columbia

There’s something electric about our campus. Maybe it’s the conversation of our passionate students or the inspiring murals splashed across buildings in the South Loop neighborhood we call home. Or maybe it’s something else. Come to campus and see for yourself. Or, meet a friendly representative at an event near you.


Open House

Saturday, November 5

You won’t want to miss this. Twice a year we open our entire campus—classrooms, labs, library, residence centers, galleries, theaters and more—so you can experience all we have to offer.

Influencers come in many forms. Maybe you're a guidance counselor or an art teacher. A minister or a member of the PTA.
