Welcome to the Columbus State Community College

6th Annual Day of Service!
 

What is Day of Service and why are we doing this?

Day of Service will be held on Tuesday, September 18. We will fan out through the community to perform all types of service projects!

Community and civic engagement is at the core of our strategic agenda, and we interact as a college and individually on many levels to support our students and our community. Our Day of Service provides an ideal opportunity for the college to come together in a large-scale demonstration of our commitment to service.
