Structure of our Group Campus Visit Program

There are two portions of the Group Visitation Program that are most common. Each portion lasts for about an hour.

Part I - Columbus State Information Presentation and Q&A Session:

  • Led by a Columbus State Admissions Specialist and allow your group to hear all the reasons why Columbus State should be a potential students first choice for college and ask any questions they may have.
  • This information session touches base on all portions of the Admissions process including Affordability, Financial Aid and Scholarships, Programs and Pathways, Registration, Student Services, etc.

Part II - Campus Tour:

  • Typically led by a Student Ambassador (Ambassadors are current Columbus State students).
  • Provide an overview of campus and key locations.

*Part III - Optional Lunch and/or Overview of Specific Department:

  • Columbus State has a full service Food Court and discount meal coupons for visiting groups.
  • If requested, we can submit a request for an overview of a specific department if all students in the group are interested in the same thing or a couple of the same areas. (i.e. Disability Services, ESL Program, Academic Program, etc.)

*Availability of these options varies.
