Atlanta Area Students Can Learn More About Columbus State University Without Leaving the City

COLUMBUS, Ga. --- Atlanta area high school students can stay close to home and still discover why more and more of their friends are choosing Columbus State University thanks to two receptions the university is hosting around the city.

Representatives will be on hand to deliver up-to-date information about CSU's academic programs, student life, financial aid, scholarships and housing options during the following events:

-- Atlanta South Regional Reception: Wednesday, March 30, 6-8 p.m., Westlake High School (2400 Union Rd SW)
-- Atlanta East Regional Reception: Tuesday, April 26, 6-8 p.m., Tucker High School (5036 Lavista Road)

Registration to both receptions is free and open to all students interested in learning more about Columbus State University or attending college in general.

“This is such a busy time of year for everyone, so visiting a college campus may not be possible," said Amy K. Clines, director of undergraduate recruitment at Columbus State. "However, the timing is just right for seniors still trying to make a college decision as well as for juniors who are getting started on their search. We're bringing the Columbus State experience to Atlanta to be part of that conversation with students and their parents."

Just 100 miles southwest of Atlanta, CSU is part of the University System of Georgia, enrolling more than 8,500 students in 46 undergraduate and 42 graduate degree paths from engineering to a doctorate in education, on campus and online. The university now enrolls students from every county in Georgia and more than 1,500 students from metro Atlanta.
