CSU’s Discovery Day Offers a Glimpse into Undergraduate, Graduate Programs

Columbus State University invites prospective undergraduate and graduate students and their guests to visit on Saturday, Feb. 17 for Discovery Day.

Prospective undergraduate students will tour the campuses, meet with professors, see campus housing and have lunch at CSU’s Cougar Café.

“This is a great opportunity for undergraduate students and their parents to see firsthand why CSU is a perfect fit for them,” said Gary Bush, executive director of admissions. “The experience is personalized for each attendee. They get to learn about their particular major, explore our RiverPark or main campus and attend sessions on the topic that they find most interesting.”

A separate Discovery Day program will also be available for prospective graduate students. Graduate School Discovery Day will include an academic fair with representatives from various graduate programs, a Q&A session with CSU alumni, and an information session on student resources, events, admissions, and housing.  Optional tours with graduate assistants will also be offered.

“We are pleased to invite prospective graduate students to this program specifically tailored just for them,” said Kristin Williams, director of graduate and global admissions. “Whether they are interested in graduate assistantships, research opportunities, or finding a way to balance graduate school with full-time employment…the CSU Graduate Discovery Day will answer all of the questions that come to mind when pursuing graduate level education.”

Those interested in attending undergraduate or graduate Discovery Day should pre-register online at https://admissions.columbusstate.edu/tours.

An additional Discovery Day for undergraduate students is scheduled for March 17.
