Digital art extravaganza

viewing the show
A group moves through the gallery of student artwork at the annual Downtown Digital Arts Fest, held last week in the Conference Center. Students entered their works in four categories, were judged and earned awards for the top entries at a ceremony held the evening of May 27. More art is in store for everyone this week at the Columbus Arts Festival, which begins Friday in the Discovery District, including portions of Columbus State’s campus!


balloonReception for Dr. Moeller to be held June 10
Mark your calendars for Thursday, June 10, from 3:30- 5:30 p.m. in the Conference Center Ballroom as we congratulate President Val Moeller on her upcoming retirement from Columbus State after 14 years leading the college.  A tribute video,  some short remarks, fine hors d’oeuvres and a chance to sign the President’s Guest Book will be included in the event. Bring a favorite photograph, quotation, or your simple well wishes to include in the memory book for Dr. Moeller. We are ending the month with a flourish of activities including the Employee Celebration, the Spring Commencement and the Grand Opening of the Delaware Campus, so please join us for this special moment to thank and congratulate our president for her many years of service!
