July 1


Tobacco Free starts today!


Columbus State Community College has become tobacco free, both inside and out, beginning today. A tobacco-free campus is a healthier, cleaner and safer place to study and work.

The college has banned the use of all tobacco products within the borders of our campuses—on the Columbus Campus, the Delaware Campus, and the Regional Learning Centers throughout the community.

Tobacco products include cigarettes, cigars, pipes, smokeless tobacco products like snuff and chew, as well as e-cigarettes and vaping devices. These products are not to be used indoors or outdoors, including in parking lots and in personal vehicles when on campus property.  

You can read much more about Columbus State’s Tobacco Free College Policy online here.  There are cessation resources, counseling programs, and wellness programs offered free of charge to all students interested in quitting their use of tobacco products.

We know that this transition will be difficult for some, and we appreciate your cooperation in helping us make Columbus State the healthiest community college in the state!

Commemorate of the 50th Anniversary of the Voting Rights Act

LBJ signing law President Lyndon Johnson signs the Voting Rights Act of 1965 as Dr. Martin Luther King and others look on.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Voting Rights Act. The anniversary follows the release of Ava DuVernay’s film Selma, which documents the movement that gave birth to the VRA. Today, thanks to the work of Martin Luther King Jr. and other civil rights advocates, laws are on the books guaranteeing equal access to the ballot box, regardless of skin color. 

In recognition of this anniversary, the City of Columbus Community Relations Commission, in partnership with Columbus State, will gather to hold the Commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of the Voting Rights Act, Thursday, July 30, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in the Columbus State Conference Center, fourth floor WD. The keynote speaker is Ben Espy. Please feel free to contact the CRC office at (614) 645-1993 for more information. Click here to purchase tickets.
