EEEL acknowledges 20 graduates

Update | Tuesday, May 12, 2020

Columbus State plays an integral role in preparing students to meet the needs of the Central Ohio workforce. Of 1,100 students who graduated last week, 20 were participants in a structured earn-and-learn program. It was administered by the College’s office of Employer Engagement and Experiential Learning (EEEL). Sixteen graduates were participants in the Modern Manufacturing Work Study (MMWS) program, and four were participants in the IT Flexible Apprenticeship program. 

Armed with real-world work experience in their chosen profession and degrees from Columbus State, their futures are bright. Whether it’s full-time employment with their host employers, exploring other opportunities in the local marketplace, or continuing their education, these students have benefitted greatly from participation in structured experiential learning programs administered by the College. 

In years past, on-campus events, supported by grant funds, were held to celebrate graduates and all that they had achieved. However, with the coronavirus pandemic restricting in-person gatherings, EEEL team members used those funds to celebrate their special achievements with grad packages. With assistance from the Bookstore, each of the 20 students will receive a celebratory package in the mail containing a certificate of achievement, a note of congratulations from the EEEL team, and a Columbus State alumni decal and notepad.
