New partnership increases visibility with young marketRespond now for free tickets to tonight’s Eddie Money concert
Several new Columbus State signs—up to 10 feet by 6 feet in size—at Lifestyle Communities Pavilion, Newport Music Hall, The Basement, and The House of Crave will feature a dancing Christopher Columbus, colorful backgrounds, and the slogan, “Education that Rocks,” (a play on the college tagline, “Education that Works”).
The artwork was created by Institutional Advancement’s Giselle White and Paul Rehg.
“We have some very talented designers on our staff who created signs that grab your attention and are extremely appropriate for the PromoWest venues. The vast majority of their shows appeal to a young audience,” says Will Kopp, VP of Institutional Advancement.
Kopp says the “Education that Rocks” tagline will be used only at the PromoWest venues.
As part of the sponsorship, the college will also have a number of tickets to PromoWest concerts, which will be given to students through a variety of promotions.
The first concert under the new partnership is tonight’s Eddie Money show at Lifestyle Communities Pavilion, and 12 free tickets are being made available to Columbus State employees. The first six Columbus State faculty or staff who respond to firstname.lastname@example.org will each receive two free tickets.

Friedley is a grammarian as well as a professional speaker and seminar presenter. His two books are widely used in high schools and businesses as guides to good English.
Originally from Flint, Mich., Rashid says “I started drawing before learning how to walk really. From what my father conveyed to me, at the age of two, I began drawing figures on paper. From there I was encouraged to expand on my art and concentrated on fine art projects and large presentational pieces. At the age of eight, I was exposed to comic books and became fascinated by the idea of mythology of the characters and history of the world projected on those pages.”
Rashid said while he was an undergraduate at the College of Wooster, he read about superstitions and mythologies, “to get a better understanding of the world’s cultures and similarities in the things that ‘go bump in the night.’”
The exhibition will be on display in the Art Gallery North area of ERC located on Level 1 of Columbus Hall through November.
