At Columbus State, going to college doesn't have to mean "going it alone." As a new student, there's a lot to learn and much to navigate, and we're here to make your transition smoother with resources and support that are simply... beyond measure.

One of the best ways to get a great college start is by joining a Learning Community.

A Learning Community is a group of students who are taking at least two of the same courses* together during their first semester. Benefits include:

  • Forming connections with fellow students who are also new to Columbus State.
  • Working closely with faculty, staff and the campus community.
  • Receiving additional academic support through study groups, advising sessions, peer mentors, and weekly faculty meetings.

Don't go it alone – join a Learning Community for Autumn Semester and start college with a network of connections!
