Columbus State has grown quite a bit over my lifetime. I remember when it started as "Columbus Technical Institute" and it has since grown to become a well respected two year college. I attended in the early 90's, and the school was still growing. The class sizes were small, the instructors brought real world experiences into the classrooms, and I felt that the entire institution was really invested in my success. Whether you are looking to complete a complete Associate's degree program, or planning on transferring to a four year college, CSCC will provide you with a solid foundation for your academic or career ambitions. I highly recommend it!

Overall, Columbus State is fantastic! Some of the facilities could use updating, and some of the advisors are lacking a little, but the professors I have had are absolutely fantastic, and they really care about preparing their students.
The courses are absolutely college-level - there is nothing lacking about them, which many say is the case with community colleges. Having attended both a university and another community college, I can confidently say that the classes and instruction at CSCC are on-par with large universities at a fraction of the cost.
All the factually genuinely care about the student at the university. They teach so you can understand the information, my professors will not move until they are sure we understand the material. They are very understanding and easy to talk to . They communicate with us very well!
