Columbia State Community College will host the inaugural Student Success Day on August 27, 2010, from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. at all five campus locations.
“The purpose of Student Success Day will be to provide a fun day for networking, relationship building, success-making, and to help students get off to a good start here at Columbia State” said Dr. Cecelia Johnson, Associate Vice President for Student Services at Columbia State. “All Columbia State students are invited to attend the event at the campus location closest to them.”
While the event is aimed primarily at welcoming first time students, those who are returning to Columbia State are welcome as well. The event is themed “Destination Columbia State: Passport To Success,” and will feature scheduled campus tours, interactive experiences, networking opportunities with faculty and staff, technology sessions, advisor availability to help with adjustments to schedules, information sessions on student groups and campus activities, and information on what to expect from classes.
There will also be free food and opportunities to win prizes, including drawings to win season passes to Columbia State Chargers Athletics events, Performance Series tickets and even a small personal notebook computer.
