Society of the Compass

Society of the CompassThe Society of the Compass is a prestigious student award developed to foster academic success. This new award is being launched in honor of the college’s 50th Anniversary, and will become an annual recognition announced at the end of each academic year (spring semester commencement).

This distinction will allow faculty and staff to recognize students who have demonstrated extraordinary achievements during their time at Columbus State. The award was aptly named the Society of the Compass because, like the compass, Columbus State is often instrumental in helping students find and follow their direction.

Membership in the Society of the Compass, therefore, represents the successful achievement and navigation of the four points that serve as the foundation of the Society’s creed: Nobility (N), Excellence (E), Service (S) and Wisdom (W).
