Columbia College Chicago Founded in 1890 as a college of elocution, the mission of Columbia College has been to educate students who will communicate creatively and shape the public’s perceptions of issues and events. Columbia College Chicago has since grown into the largest arts and media college in the nation, with approximately 11,000 current undergraduate and graduate students, as well as more than 100,000 alumni, making our “network” among the largest of any arts and media college in the world.

The Loop Located in the Columbia Arts District in the heart of Chicago’s South Loop, Columbia College is just steps away from Chicago’s museum campus and a short bus or train ride from hundreds of theatre and music venues, independent film festivals, and galleries. Home to more than 16,000 residents and over 3,000 businesses, the South Loop is one of the fastest growing areas in downtown Chicago.
