Are you ready for Spring Break?

sunny graphicOne of the benefits of switching to the semester system is that all Ohio colleges and universities are on the same calendar—one that includes a Spring Break!

Columbus State’s Spring Break is Sunday, March 10 through Saturday, March 16.

Like the break between semesters, the college is open during Spring Break, but no classes will be held, and faculty will not be on campus. All college offices and student services will be open with normal business hours, so you can register for classes, pay fees, meet with advisors, study in the Library, work out in the Fitness Center, call the Telephone Information Center, ask the Help Desk to reset your password…all the normal things. Just don’t come to classes. Because they won’t be there.

Have more questions about specific department’s hours during the break? Call the Telephone Information Center, at (614) 287-5353 for more details.
