Block Program

The Block Program is a learning community designed to assist students in attaining stronger academic skills and to help them adjust to their first year at Columbus State. This program begins in autumn quarter and goes through spring quarter for first-quarter daytime students. This opportunity gives students a chance to connect and form positive relationships that build a close bond to the faculty, peers, and the advisor.
