Join the Student Ambassadors on Tuesday, December 1, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in Nestor Hall Student Lounge for “#GivingTuesday,” when they will be helping everyone take an “UNselfie” to post on social media!

What’s is an #UNselfie?  It’s a selfie with a cause!  Tuesday, December 1, is #GivingTuesday, when many nonprofit organizations across the country use the holiday season to promote giving back.  After Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday changes the mood from spending … to giving!

On #GivingTuesday, Columbus State donors, alumni, staff, faculty and students will donate what they can to the Columbus State Foundation, to benefit students who might be the first in their family to attend college, students from low-income families who are at risk of dropping out without additional financial support, and students with emergency needs.

By taking an #UNselfie on Dec. 1 and posting it to your Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter, you can raise awareness for Columbus State’s own Giving Tuesday campaign! So drop by Nestor Hall and pose, then post with the hashtags #GivingTuesday, #give2CSCC, and #UNselfie!  We’ll have treats and goodies too, so see you there!

Cross-country nationals produces All-American

coach with Shepherd Cross-Country Coach Dustin Iacovone congratulates top Columbus State finisher Stevie Shepherd after her race.

After an eight-year hiatus for women's cross country at Columbus State, the college fielded a successful team at the NJCAA DIII national championship held in Westfield, Mass. November 7. A field of 130 runners competed at the challenging five-kilometer Stanley Park course.

A dominant effort by freshman Stevie Shepherd led to a 15th place finish and all-American honors, the first for a women's cross country runner since 2004.

Shepherd, an Associate of Arts major, finished the race in 20:20.5, the second-fastest time in school history. The strong finish highlights the Sidney, Ohio native's successful campaign this season that includes a victory in the Region XII DIII meet.

"I'm so excited and proud of Stevie and how far she's come. I could see that there was a lot of potential in her," said Coach Dustin Iacovone. "She kept getting faster and it hit me that she could be an all-American. We had a talk about what she could do, and she did it. She's a coach's dream."

Emily Howard, a freshman from Powell, came in 54th in 21:48.7, her second-fastest 5K this season. Halla Jones, a sophomore from Fredericktown, improved to a 23:55.6, shaving 28 seconds off her time at the regional meet.
