“My experience with Frequency TV was the highlight of my education at Columbia College. As a "Freq", I was able to perform what I learned in class while applying my skills to real world situations. I would not be where I am today without Frequency TV. Truly one of the best student experiences at Columbia College Chicago!”

-Robyn Minor, Television ‘18
