The six-week program is for individuals with Down syndrome. The partnership with The First Tee® Columbus will expose participants, mentors and instructors to The First Tee Life Skills Experience. This curriculum teaches valuable life skills including problem solving, managing time, controlling emotions, making friends with diverse peers, working well with others and improving relationships with family and community.

The participants learn golf fundamentals and participate in activities designed to build character, instill life enhancing values and promote healthy choices.
The First Tee of Columbus is a program of the World Golf Foundation and is administered through Columbus State’s K-12 Initiatives department.

Secure Shredding has significant environmental impact 

paper shreddedIt's been five months since Columbus State started the secure recycling/document destruction program with Iron Mountain. While successfully contributing to the secure destruction of Columbus State documents, your participation in this program has also had a positive impact on our environment. You can see a chart of the total impact here. Thank you for your ongoing support of this initiative. Please contact Rob Clifford at extension 3686 if you have any questions.


The Spoken Word:  What do our students have to say?

Melissa Logue, instructor in Modern Languages, will offer a hands-on workshop in which participants will learn about a variety of free tools that can be used to orally capture students’ thoughts and responses.

These tools can also be used as a convenient and effective method for instructors to disseminate feedback and to deliver various announcements. Foreign language instructors can use such technologies to capture oral exams. ESL instructors can use these tools to help students practice pronunciation and speaking. Nursing instructors can use these instruments to capture students’ interactions with patients. Math instructors can record short videos on how to solve difficult equations that can then be embedded into Blackboard.

Any instructor who has students doing oral presentations can use such software to encourage practice and to provide feedback. Web instructors are encouraged to incorporate such technologies in their online classes, in order to build community and teacher-student presence.

Please mark your calendars for Friday, June 3 from 2-4 p.m. The workshop will be held in FR 310. Since we will be using computers and headphones, advance registration is required by contacting Melissa Logue at or by phone at ext. 5278.
