DEC. 18 - FALL GRADUATION CEREMONY
Columbus State Universitys fall 2005 commencement, recognizing approximately 380 degree recipients will be held at 3 p.m. Sunday in the Lumpkin Center. Seating will begin at 1:30 p.m. and be conducted on a first-come, first-served basis. Shuttles will be available to transport guests from parking lots throughout campus.
The commencement address will be delivered by Douglas C. Pullen, superior court judge in the Chattahoochee Judicial Circuit. Additionally, CSU will award an Honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters to Aaron Cohn, presiding judge of juvenile court for the Chattahoochee Judicial Circuit.

Cohn, a WWII veteran, is regarded as a tireless advocate for childrens rights. Such recognition has been reflected in numerous awards including the Amicus Curiae Award for his 40 years outstanding service. Educated in Columbus public schools, Cohn is a graduate of the University of Georgias Lumpkin School of Law. He also studied juvenile justice at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland and at international conferences in Amsterdam and in Turin.
