COLUMBUS, Ga. — Columbus State University's Leadership Institute is taking advantage of the community's new whitewater course to create a unique, engaging leadership development experience.
CSU's Leadership Institute now offers an experiential, results-driven, learning-oriented river trip incorporating teamwork, communication and trust — leadership concerns more often addressed in a classroom setting.
The whitewater offering is the latest addition to a full slate of leadership development experiences the university offers, said Eva Cooper, director of leadership and business development for CSU's Leadership Institute.

COLUMBUS, Ga. — When Fox and Mulberry Creek elementary schools asked for help, Columbus State University answered with an emphatic yes.
CSU mobilized its student teachers to those Muscogee and Harris county schools to help improve test scores, and the effort yielded positive results.
"We've seen a substantial gain in test scores," said Penny Thornton, Fox Elementary principal. "The actual scores will not come out until the start of the new school year, but we know that there has been a great deal of improvement with our students. CSU played a large part in that."

COLUMBUS, Ga. — Columbus State University has taken another step toward eliminating barriers encountered by students who have to show they are ready for college-level math courses.
Until a few years ago, CSU required all students to take a Math Placement Test. CSU then developed a formula to calculatemath readiness that uses students' high school GPA (in college prep classes) and their scores on the math portion of the SAT or ACT tests.
The university is fine-tuning the formula this year to allow some newly admitted students to bypass the need for the MathPlacement Test altogether. Some students may still have to take the COMPASS exam – short for Computer-Adaptive Placement Assessment and Support System, a widely used series of tests used to measure college readiness.

COLUMBUS, Ga. -- Columbus State University is hosting its first Summer Transition Camp 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. June 11-12 at CSU's Schuster Student Success Center.
Camp Belay is for students with disabilities who graduated from high school this year and some who will be high school seniors this fall. It's being held by CSU in collaboration with the Muscogee County School District, Georgia Vocational Rehabilitation Agency and the Georgia High School/High Tech program.
The camp's name aims to emphasize the need for campers to rely on their resources. Belay is a technique used in sailing and mountain climbing to secure one rope to an anchor point or to another person. Campers, who signed up for this camp during the school year at their high schools, will be given small clips used in mountain climbing, to serve as a reminder of their need for each other and various resources when going to college.
