Celebrate Spiritual Wellness Nov. 27

The office of Student Engagement and Leadership (SEaL) will offer a day of Spiritual Wellness activities Tuesday, November 27, starting with meditation at 8 a.m. in Delaware Hall Room 158.

logo“Spiritual wellness” refers to integrating our beliefs and values with our actions. The first step in developing values and spiritual wellness is to examine your own values: respect, honesty, human life, family, education, religion, health, wealth, community service and diversity.

The spiritually well person seeks meaning and purpose in human existence. He or she possesses a set of guiding beliefs, principles or values that give meaning and purpose to life. Spiritual wellness is also the capacity to love, have compassion for others, and express forgiveness, joy and fulfillment.

Register for Spring Semester and Go for Fifteen!

logoSpring Semester registration started October 22 and Spring Semester begins Monday, January 14 at Columbus State, so now’s the time to select your classes and fill your schedule for the next term.

When you’re looking at your Spring Schedule, remember to “Go for 15!” Fifteen credits that is. With the new semester schedule that all Ohio colleges and universities are on now, you will need to have at least 15 credits to complete your degree according to plan.

Because semesters are longer, your classes are now stretched out over 15 weeks. Take a look at your Plan of Study for your degree and you’ll see that it requires at least 60 credits to complete. A “full load” of classes –at least 15 credits – will get you there on time and on budget!

NOTE: Columbus State will close on-campus offices and student services from Saturday, Dec. 22 –Tuesday, Jan. 1, 2013, for the holidays. These offices will re-open on January 2, 2013. Online registration and fee payment will still be available during this period on CougarWeb, but in-person, on-campus, or phone services will NOT be available.

The On-time Registration period for Spring Semester is still October 22 – December 30, but the Late Registration Fee has been waived this term due to the holiday break. Just be sure to register early in order to schedule the classes and sections you want for spring! The Fee Payment Deadline for Spring Semester is January 9, 2013.
