Columbia ranked #4 on list of best surfing schools
Yeah, you read that correctly. The Inertia has released its list of America’s top ten surf universities, and Columbia is actually in the top five. Amidst beach-y California schools (as well as some in New Jersey, Florida, and North Carolina), Columbia is the highest-ranked East Coast school. We’re beaten out only by UC Santa Cruz, University of Hawaii at Manoa, and UC San Diego.
Do people actually go surfing here? Whatever, I’ll take it!
Here’s what The Inertia has to say about Columbia’s surf scene:
Willing to sacrifice world-class waves for a world-class education? New York City’s Columbia University does just that. Manhattan may not be Surf City, but hop on the Long Island Railroad (LIRR) and take it to Long Beach or Montauk and you won’t be disappointed. Catch it in September-October and you might even be pleasantly surprised. This assumes that you even have the time to break away from the rigorous studies involved in attending an Ivy League school. But hey, you want a good job after you graduate, right?
