Are you a leader?

student ambassadorDo you desire to make a positive impact on Columbus State students, change your life and gain a tight group of friends?  And get paid to do it?

Then you should consider becoming a Student Ambassador!

The Student Ambassador Leadership Program allows students to participate in various public relations, recruiting and leadership activities at Columbus State, while earning money to help pay for tuition and other educational expenses.

Ambassadors staff the New Student Orientation programs, give campus tours, assist with special events, participate in community outreach activities and work on special projects with academic and student service departments at the college.

If this sounds like something you’d like to know more about, email the Student Ambassador Leadership Program at, or call (614) 287-3621. Applications to the 2012/2013 program are due by Monday, April 23.

Bike-fixing kit now available

inside of box

Got a flat tire, or just need some air? There’s now a bike-fixing kit located at the Student Activities office in Nestor Hall 116.

The kit includes tube patches, some new tubes, a pump, and other bike fixing tools. Students and employees can borrow items by laying down their ID. The kit also includes information on local bike shops if you need more help.

The kit is just one way to make Columbus State more accessible to cyclists. Fear of mechanical problems is one thing keeping people from bike-commuting.

Items were donated by Columbus State’s informal biking community and B1 Bicycles, a downtown bike store at 124 E. Long Street. If you use an item, please consider making a donation back to the kit.
