Student Success Series

When it comes to learning skills that will help you reach your goals, there’s no better place than Columbus State. In addition to our outstanding academics, we are committed to helping our students develop life skills that contribute to overall wellbeing and success.

Each semester, Student Success Workshops are offered free of charge to current students, covering the topics listed below. Additional workshops are added throughout the semester, so be sure to check the calendar often for the most up-to-date schedule of events.
