Events for High School Students

High School Students

Your high school years are the perfect time to explore higher educational options. At Columbus State, we want to provide you with as many types of opportunities to visit our campus and get the information that is important to you. We have broken down our events for high school students into two categories: Events for prospective students who are considering going to Columbus State and may have not yet applied for admission, and events for students who have already applied, been accepted, and are looking for their next steps toward becoming a Columbus State Cougar!
