Student Employment to give Employee of Year award
“This grant is a great step toward developing a culture of value and recognition surrounding student employment,” says Clayton Gibson, program coordinator. “Student employees really are an energetic and important part of the workforce here at Columbus State.”
Half of the money will go directly to a student in the form of a $250 scholarship. The other half will be used to pay for professional development programs for students during the National Student Employment Week in April.
Based in the Financial Aid Office, Student Employment Services is new to the campus this year. At any given time, Columbus State has between 200 and 250 student employees working both on-campus and off-campus with a network of nonprofit partners. For more information, contact Clayton Gibson.
More than 1,500 middle and high school students, plus their instructors and counselors from across the state, attended the Automotive Technology Day September 24 at National Trail Raceway in Hebron. The event was co-sponsored by Columbus State Automotive Technology and the racetrack in conjunction with Jeg’s Sports Nationals drag racing held later in the day.
Students were able to attend a career fair, speak with representatives from Columbus State and other area college automotive programs, and visit with local automotive employers, tool and parts vendors, and representatives from the U.S. Army and Ohio National Guard.
Following the career fair and formal presentation, the students were treated to a full day of activities at the race track. They had the opportunity to experience the world of auto racing first hand and were given open access to the pit area, where they were able to see the vehicles up close and talk to the owners and crews.
Take a tour of the Disability Services Alternate Media Production Room. An Alternate Media Specialist will explain the process of how students receive e-texts and other alternate media service at Columbus State.

PC and printer replacement news
As part of Columbus State’s ongoing “technology refresh” cycle, all pre-approved desktop PCs and printers due for replacement in this year’s capital equipment process will soon be replaced. With this new equipment, we will be able to realize reduced energy costs, faster processing speeds and improved productivity for the college.
In mid-October, PC replacement will begin in offices, computer labs and the testing center. In November, smart classrooms will be upgraded. All work should be completed in three months.
Your new PC will come with Windows 7. A schedule for upcoming Windows 7 training sessions will be available soon on the Intranet.
So how will you know if your desktop PC is being replaced? You can check the Intranet for the PC/Printer Replacement Schedule and other important updates regarding the capital equipment rollout. You will be contacted directly regarding your installation schedule. If you have a conflict, please contact the IT Support Center (ext. 5050). We will work hard to accommodate your schedule and to minimize work time disruption as we upgrade desktop PCs across campus.
All relevant data from your current desktop PC will be transferred to your new PC. When you are contacted, you will be reminded to copy all files you want to save into the “My Documents” folder. You can also contact the IT Support Center (ext. 5050) if you need assistance in collecting and moving your files.
We also will be working with our new printer vendor to bring the most cost-effective printers to our users, based upon their approved capital equipment requests.
