Campus Life

We understand that your personal and professional growth isn’t limited to what you learn in the classroom. Or rather, at Columbia State, the entire campus and its surrounding community is your classroom.

Perhaps your quest for academic excellence will take you to our chapter of Phi Theta Kappa, the international honors society for two-year institutions. Or maybe your desire to develop your leadership skills will inspire you to campaign for a position in the Student Government Association. Or your love of the game will spur you to cheer on (or play for) our baseball, softball or basketball teams.

And if there’s some activity or hobby you love that isn’t represented, we encourage you to start your own club or organization.

Whatever paths you choose to explore, remember that campus life is what you make it.

Clubs & Student Organizations

Columbia State invites every student to find a club or an organization that matches your individual passions. From academic to health to athletic to community service, groups have been established by students to ignite learning, find new circles of friends, give back to the community or keep you healthy.
Phi Theta Kappa

Academic Organizations

There are groups that have formed in many of the individual disciplines that expose members to real life issues within the area of study, network students with working professionals in those areas and to create opportunities for mini learning communities. Check with your advisor, or click here to find your team.
Student Enrichment - Jazz Player

Student Enrichment

Students should be on the lookout throughout the year for a wide variety of concerts, lectures, performances and cultural events that bring talented artists and scholars onto the campus. Most of these are free to students and present an incredible opportunity to experience tremendous events in an intimate setting.



Cheer for the Chargers! The Charger and Lady Charger Basketball teams are league leaders and nationally recognized. Games are fast-paced and exciting. Be at Webster for EVERY tipoff! Charger and Lady Charger Baseball and Softball season starts early.  The guys and gals of summer begin their season on the Dave Hall Baseball and the Eddie Campbell Softball fields beginning in February! Grab a jacket and be on the field.

Community Outreach

Community Outreach

Columbia State students, faculty and staff know how to give back. Connecting need with student passion is the goal of community outreach. Activities can be linked to your studies or be an area of interest for you. But chances are there is a group on campus trying to support those community needs.
Wellness Center

Wellness Center

The Wellness Center is located adjacent to the Webster Athletic Center.  In it you will find state-of-the-art workout equipment and fitness classes. The Wellness Center is free to all students, faculty and staff, but you will need your photo ID to work the swipe lock on the front door.

A Great Place To Start. Invest in Columbia State.
