It’s been a while since we've seen this!

snowy scene
Columbus State is ready for snow, if we ever get any this year!

But when it finally comes, we want you to stay safe on campus by following a few tips:

Please be careful when walking on any wet floors in the buildings. Use the mats to wipe off your feet, and always use handrails on stairs.

If you get here really early on a day when we’ve had snow overnight, don’t park where the machines are still clearing parking lots. Park in a cleared area if possible! Columbus State gets everything plowed pretty early in the morning though, when most everyone is still asleep!

And finally, try not to walk near the machines that are clearing sidewalks and parking areas because they move quickly and that can be dangerous.
