Community is woven into every aspect of the CBS
experience and is the primary reason I chose Columbia.
It was apparent at my first information session, which
was organized by Cluster Q, the LGBT group on campus.
It was clear that the group was entirely student led,
was highly visible, and had the support of the entire
CBS community. Thats a perfect example of the culture
students here are immersed in from day one: open,
inclusive, and supportive.
