Living in a college town, it can be easy to get swept up in the latest higher education rankings. It seems like a different list is published each day: What school offers the most bang for your buck? Which have the strongest alumni networks? Which school is the safest bet for a left-handed student paying out-of-state tuition? These listings have their purposes, but it seems like two factors should loom the largest. What creative or innovative work is the school engaged in today? And how well has it prepared past students to make their way in the world? By those standards, the art department at Columbia College is sitting near the head of its class. Right now, two alums are augmenting the work of current students by displaying pieces of resonance in the school’s galleries.
