Preview Columbus State’s mobile website

mobile deviceColumbus State’s mobile website is ready for a semi-public preview here:

The site is designed with information that’s most useful to mobile users, including Admissions, Course Schedules, and Maps & Directions. The site was designed by the same firm that designed Columbus State’s current website.

We chose content through a small survey, and by examining our server data to see which sites get the most mobile traffic. A group of students came in for one-on-one user testing on the site last week.

The mobile website is designed as a complement to the main ... for more detailed information, users will still be referred to the main site. Separately, Columbus State is working on ways to make the main site more mobile-friendly.

Honor society takes awards at Regional

The Columbus State chapter of Phi Theta Kappa, the community college honor society, earned a 5-Star rating for its service projects in 2011.
The chapter received the awards at regional competition recently, on the strength of two major projects. The chapter urged students to sign a college-completion pledge in February. Then, in November, the chapter hosted a panel on school bullying. The event won 1st Runner-Up for their project, as well as a “Catch a Shining Star Award.”
Several members received individual awards:

  • Paul Saltz was inducted into the Order of Athena and recognized as Ohio Region’s 2011 Most Distinguished Regional Officer.
  • Britta Sharp, vice president of membership, was inducted into the Order of the Golden Key.
  • Christine Drake was inducted into the Order of Athena and received the Ohio Region’s Most Distinguished Chapter Officer award.

Columbus State’s Phi Theta Kappa was founded in 1990. The honor society has 1,275 chapters worldwide and 39 in Ohio.

New noodles in town

noodle cart
There’s a whole new type of food cart located on the sidewalk between Nestor Hall and TL these days!

The Noodle Bowl serves Asian, Mediterranean and All-American favorites.
Cart manager and chef Doug Harvey has spent his career in four- and five-star restaurants, and his flair for flavor is evident in the many choices at the Noodle Bowl. “So far, the Asian stir fry with General Tso sauce, and the Alfredo dishes are the big sellers,” he says.

The Noodle Bowl is open weekdays from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. and bowls start at just $6.  Try it out after Spring Break!
