Construction Note: Construction began yesterday on two new COTA bus stops next to the Columbus Campus. The current shelters in front of the TL building and the Bookstore will be torn down. Temporary ones will be installed while the new shelters are built. COTA buses will continue to drop off and pick up passengers near the corner of Cleveland and Mt. Vernon avenues.

This project will take several weeks. During that time, traffic on Cleveland Avenue will occasionally be reduced to one lane in each direction. Barricades will be set up when crews are working on the sidewalk areas. 


You can help build the new Columbus State website!

Columbus State’s Marketing Department is looking for student employees to help build the new website. This is a great hands-on opportunity for students in the Interactive Media or Computer Science areas.

The work: Students will be responsible for transferring content from the old site to the new site, reformatting pictures, checking links, and flagging any problems.

Students don’t need to be financial-aid eligible, but must be registered for at least 3 credit hours this summer semester. The job will start July 15 and last about two months.

You can apply online here.

Criteria for each award are listed in a nomination packet available from Terrence Brooks, director of the Office of Student Conduct, interim director of Student Engagement and Leadership. Submissions are due by Friday, July 14.
