Join Business Programs for study abroad in Spain this spring!

city of Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain is one of the most colorful cities in the world, where modern skyscrapers sit alongside ancient cultural and religious icons.

As a follow-up to the study abroad trip to Cuba last December, the Business Programs Department will travel to Spain at the end of Spring Semester 2017.  The course, BMGT 1798, Study Abroad/Global Management – Spain, includes an exciting study abroad experience in beautiful Madrid and Barcelona, where students will learn first-hand about the operations of three companies.   

The student group will discover what is involved in the operation of a company within the European Union (EU), as well as in a global environment. Also planned is a meeting with a senior political analyst from the European Commission to discuss membership in the EU and the workings of commerce among member and non-member countries. 

The eight-week course is open to all students but a preference will be given to Business Program majors. Knowledge of Spanish is not a requirement.

Information sessions will be held for this course on both the Columbus and Delaware campuses soon (dates will be announced). The estimated cost for the trip is $3,600, which does not include tuition for the course.  There may be scholarships available. 

For more information, or to be notified of upcoming information sessions, please contact business faculty member Terrie Stolte, at (614) 287-2798. 


Reminder: Offices close at 4:00 p.m. July 1

On Friday, July 1, Columbus State offices only will close at 4:00 p.m. on the Columbus Campus, Delaware Campus, and regional learning centers. Classes held at 4:00 p.m. or later will be held as scheduled—contact your instructor if you have a question about a Friday evening class on July 1.

Also on July 1, the 32-S parking lot and the parking garage will be closed all day to allow for the Columbus Police Department to stage for Red, White and Boom! in downtown Columbus.


Local production of ‘Play On!’ features students

Standing Room Only Theatre Company opens its 32nd season with Rick Abbott’s hilarious showbiz comedy, Play On! This is a three-act comical story of a theater group trying desperately to put on a play in spite of maddening interference from a haughty author who keeps revising the script. The cast includes some Columbus State students.

Show times are Thursday June 30; 10:30 a.m. Friday, July 1; 2 and 7:30 p.m. Saturday, July 2.

Standing Room Only Theatre Company, MabLab Theatre and Gallery, is located at 227 N. 3rd St. Tickets are $20; $15 for senior citizens and Columbus State students. Buy tickets here:


Sidewalks closed in various locations

As the major road and sidewalk reconstruction project continues alongside the Columbus Campus, contractors want to remind us that the sidewalks along some portions of Grove Street near Delaware Hall are closed to pedestrians for safety reasons. Signs and barriers have now been installed on those sections of the project, in addition a portion of the spaces in lot 2E have been blocked off. People parking in lot 2E are encouraged to park on the east end of the lot and follow the signage directing them around the construction zone and into the building. The entire project is scheduled to be completed by late August.

The city of Columbus is currently working on sidewalk, curb and paving improvements along Spring Street through campus. As a result, the crosswalk at the northeast corner of Spring Street and Mt. Vernon Avenue will be under construction through Friday, July 1. Pedestrians crossing the street from the parking garage and entering campus will need to go around this construction. When complete, this crosswalk will be ADA compliant. Signage is posted and pedestrians should be aware of equipment working in this area.


Still time to apply for fall scholarships

Applying for scholarships at Columbus State now takes just a single application.

The new online scholarships application is as easy as visiting and filling out the form. When you submit your scholarship application, Columbus State will review your scholarship application and match you with all the Columbus State scholarships for which you meet the criteria.

Columbus State then forwards your scholarship application to appropriate scholarship review committees, alerts you if additional information is needed for specific scholarships, and notifies you of scholarships that you have been awarded.

So visit to fill out your scholarship application by the deadline of Sunday, July 17. Many scholarships have limited funds and are awarded to the first qualified applicants.
