The Komen Columbus Affiliate, which has raised nearly $11 million since it began in 1993, ranks tenth out of 108 Susan G. Komen for the Cure affiliates around the nation and world in race participation.  The Communication Skills department was proud to participate in this year's 5-kilometer run/walk.

Arts Fest reminders:
All faculty should remind their students that most of the parking lots and the garage on campus will be charging $5 to park after 4 p.m. Friday, June 6 (all day for the garage and lot 11-S), and all day Saturday and Sunday, June 7 and 8, during the Columbus Arts Festival. The parking lots west of Cleveland Ave. will be reserved as free parking for students with a valid Spring Qtr. parking permit.  Employees are asked to pay the $5 fee in CSCC lots or to park free at Fort Hayes High School.
Many online students and others will be scheduled to take finals and make-up tests in the Testing Center on the days during the Festival, and faculty should make sure to remind them about the parking situation. If students do not have a valid Spring Quarter parking pass, they will have to pay $5 to park in a Columbus State lot.
The Festival will take place in the Discovery District, with many of the events and venues set up on our campus, including the music stages and other events in our 12-S parking lot.
The 12-S parking lot adjacent to the parking garage will be closed completely beginning Thursday morning (June 5) for Arts Fest setup. Students and employees needing handicapped parking will be able to park in lot 10-V, in front of Nestor Hall or 1E next to TL. Public Safety officers will be on campus checking for those who may need transportation from handicap areas to their destination.
Proceeds from the Arts Festival parking will go to the Columbus State Development Foundation for scholarships.
