Located in the heart of downtown Chicago’s Cultural Mile, Columbia College Chicago is a private, nonprofit college offering a distinctive curriculum that blends creative and media arts, liberal arts, and business for nearly 7,000 students in more than 60 undergraduate and graduate degree programs. Dedicated to academic excellence and long-term career success, Columbia College Chicago creates a dynamic, challenging, and collaborative space for students who see the world through a creative lens.


TFC is proud to be a part of an ongoing, booming revitalization of the historic South Loop neighborhood in which Columbia College is located. Among three current large-scale residential building projects, the area is growing a reputation for safety, community and commerce.

“Here’s the great thing about South Loop — it’s always been an iconic neighborhood. The North Side of Michigan Avenue gets deemed the Magnificent Mile because of all the high-end retail that’s there, but when you look south of Randolph, I think it’s more the Cultural Mile — you’re close to theaters, parks, museums, and you have all the world-class restaurants, retail and shopping that the city has to offer.” -Tommy Choi, President, Chicago Association of Realtors
