Brazilian filmmaker to visit
Columbus State's Spanish program is co-hosting a Latin American Film Series in October
and November, focusing on the films of Walter Salles.
The series is sponsored by the Spanish Program in our Department of Modern Languages,
along with Ohio State University's Center for Latin American Studies. All movies are
free and subtitled in English. And Columbus State students are invited when Salles
himself visits Ohio State on Nov. 16.
Brazilian filmmaker Salles is the most recognizable figure of contemporary Brazilian
cinema globally, and his films have consistently won nominations and prizes at top-tier
"This is a unique opportunity to enjoy high-quality cinematographic products from
all around Latin America, which get very poor commercial circulation, even though
they are well-received and widely awarded in the international festivals," said Dr.
G. Raquel Pina, a Columbus State Spanish instructor and co-organizer.
Upcoming films are:
Primeiro Dia/Midnight (1999) – Thursday, November 1
Abril Despedaçado/Behind the Sun (2001) – Thursday, November 15
Linha de Passe/Life is What You Make It (2008) – Thursday, November 29
All films take place at 2 p.m. Thursdays in Franklin Hall 106/107. Walter Salles visits
OSU on Friday, Nov. 16, with more information at the OSU Center for Latin American Studies.

Register for Spring Semester and Go for Fifteen!
Spring Semester registration begins Monday, October 22! 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 student services from Saturday, Dec. 22 –Tuesday, Jan. 1, 2013, for the holidays. These services 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 8, 2013.
