Columbus State University Hosts Discovery Day for Future Students

COLUMBUS, Ga. — Columbus State University will host its first Discovery Day of 2013-2014 on Saturday, Sept. 21, starting the day’s activities at 9 a.m. in the Student Recreation Center on main campus.

CSU’s Discovery Day is free and open to all prospective students and guests such as parents. Prospective students will be able to experience Columbus State and all it offers in the course of the day’s activities. Attendees will be able to tour both main and RiverPark campuses, meet current students and professors, and chat with Admissions, Financial Aid and Student Life representatives.


Prospective students who attend will be CSU’s guests for lunch.

Columbus offers four Discovery Days each academic year. Two are offered in the fall semester and two in the spring semester. Each Saturday session offers three to five hours of activities.

“This visit will allow students and their guests an opportunity to tour the campus, meet current CSU students and speak with professors from their area of interest during something we call Cougar Academic Session,” said Marga Velasquez, Columbus State’s assistant director of recruitment. “Then they can join us for a complimentary lunch, and learn more about the admissions process and scholarship opportunities at CSU.”

Due to limited space, attendees must pre-register online by visiting and selecting the link for the Sept. 21 session. More information on CSU’s Discovery day is available there or by calling 706-507-8800.
