In 1966, Columbia State was established as Tennessee's first community college. We've grown from temporary classrooms in a downtown building to five campuses serving a nine county service area. Today, we are fifty years into our journey - and we've just begun! This is our story.
Smoke and Tobacco-Free
Columbia State is smoke and tobacco-free at all five campuses. This policy prohibits the use of all forms of tobacco, including but not limited to cigarettes, cigars, pipes, chewing tobacco, snuff, e-cigarettes and other similar devices.
