Denise McKellick, a Columbus State student and a member of TRiO/Student Support Services, contributed an original watercolor to PupArt, a silent auction fundraising effort by the Friends of the Shelter. Denise’s contribution “The Road Ahead” was inspired by a photograph of her niece walking her dog. 

Friends of the Shelter is an all-volunteer organization that raises funds for the medical care of dogs at the Franklin County Dog Shelter. PupArt, an annual event, was held August 26 at the McConnell Arts Center in Worthington. This year’s event raised over $20,000.


Sophomore presents at Harvard as part of Columbus State research


Cross country runner and Columbus State sophomore Cody Null recently presented at a conference held at Harvard University August 6-10. The conference included a poster session and several talks from 44 professors about the transition from using the Chandra telescope for research to the future Lynx telescope. The purpose of the poster sessions was for small talk and to share research with other students.

Null conducted his research with astronomy instructor Anjali Gupta in Nestor Hall. Gupta and Null met once or twice a week to keep on track. According to Null, “most days I would use a computer program to refine data from the Chandra telescope in an effort to identify properties, density, and the baryonic fraction of my specific area of space.”
