Professors won't give a dime of their time unless you meet their snooty expectations. At Columbia, "dumb questions" are simply dumb, not simply because they are dumb, because they make you look dumb. Most do not participate in class because they're afraid of looking stupid, while those that do participate really don't say anything but appear somewhat intelligent. Students are very divided and competitive.

Campus life is awful. Columbia is very far away from city life. The institution splits the haves and the have-nots, as apparent from the view of Harlem down below. If you want to find a community, find it in the city, and not from Columbia. Most students would claim that they "experienced the city", but more often than not, they only experienced the privilege of living with over privileged brats on campus and not the real people.
