Administration and Student Services Building
This signature building, that houses administration and student services, is located at the head of the campus and is positioned to welcome students and the public. Students will enter from the mall area of campus onto the main floor where the student center will provide a comfortable place to hang out and enjoy the coffee shop, to meet up with friends to study or to simply recharge themselves and their electronic devices between classes. Students will find a one- stop shop of services from financial aid to admissions on this floor.
The public will have a different experience entering the front of the building onto the second floor with a view of the campus through the atrium. Anchoring the entrance to the left and right will be the corporate workforce training center and community conference center, with catering capacity. The college and campus administration will have space on this level in which to work and meet the public.
The library, with comfortable seating for reading and rooms for students to reserve for group study, will span the length of the upper floor. Across the hall, students will be provided help in the tutoring and assessment center and learning support area. In addition, Columbia State will be a licensed location to proctor exams for universities or businesses needing such services for special certification exams.
