Columbus State University (CSU) offers challenging programs; thought-provoking and creative faculty collaborations; and a vibrant, globally connected campus — making it a first-choice option in higher education.

As part of the University System of Georgia, CSU is located in scenic Southwest Georgia and attracts future leaders from across the globe.

CSU includes nationally recognized departments and innovative international programs on both its traditional main campus and urban downtown campus in historic Columbus, along the banks of the Chattahoochee River.

It’s also the home of the world’s longest urban whitewater course, a zip line to Alabama and a plethora of local restaurants.

The university emphasizes excellence in teaching and research; lifelong learning; cultural enrichment; public-private partnerships and service to others.

The inclusive excellence-driven university enrolls approximately 7,000 undergraduate students and 1,500 graduate students in 46 undergraduate and 42 graduate degree paths.

The university’s downtown campus, RiverPark, features engaging exploration opportunities, from the university’s Coca-Cola Space Science Center to one of the fastest-growing music programs in the Southeast, the award-winning Schwob School of Music.

Because of its commitment to empower students, faculty, staff and the community to make global impacts, CSU has emerged as one of the nation’s first-choice universities.

  • Since this is were I taught for many year, I am biased. It keeps get better. The main campus is more of a tradition campus, while the downtown campus is more urban (as urban as Columbus gets). The rec...  read more »
  • Just went by to see some friends since I had came back in town that I haven't seen in a minute. So we all got together and it was like old times to be around each other it was just like old times. 
  • Nice campus. We were in the Civic Center attending a graduation. Plenty of bathrooms, lovely staircase and an elevator for those of us who couldn't do the stairs going up. 
  • The staff is allowed to pretty much do as they please to anyone and everyone, regardless if you take any issues through "Proper Channels." The Department Chairs pretty much default towards the professors at all times. Funny how someone who's best interest is to make sure his or her department is in order and under control- is tasked to investigate themselves, so the quintessential result is them sweeping anything and everything "Under the Rug" to not look bad. Funny.
  • I am falling in love with columbus state University. Althogh am just applying, but I am impressed with swift response to questions, so also the warm and professionalism demonstrated by Tammy ( Int admissions counselor). The help desk is wonderful. They respond to my query in less than 5 minutes(I have never experienced such turn-around time before). My instincts tells me, I will be happy and fufilled if I attend Columbus state University.
  • This review is based off my graduate admissions experience. If you want to waste your time applying to an institution where the right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing this might be the place for you. If you want to go weeks before hearing back from admissions this may also be a great fit for you too. If you would like to be flat out lied to this may also be a fantastic university for you . After sending in all of the required documents and recommendation letters, I received a notification from admissions that I needed to send in my GRE scores. Well on the webpage for this particular program there's no mention of taking the GRE under the admissions requirements. I emailed admissions and called the head of this particular department to ask if I could have an extension of about 5-7 days to take this test since I did not know this was a requirement. While on the phone with the head of the department he told me if my undergrad GPA was above a 3.0 or higher he could waive the GRE requirement. (This was a month ago) The graduate admissions lady emails me back five days later telling me I still need to take the GRE I reply back with the information I was given by the head of the department and I don't hear back again from the graduate admissions contact until 12 days later after leaving two voicemails and several emails including one from the head of the department confirming "If you have a 3.0 GPA or higher no GRE is necessary." (Exact words in the email) The graduate admissions contact finally emails me back stating that per the same head of the department that I still have to take the GRE. There's now less than two weeks before Fall semester starts, I'm going out of town in less than 48 hours for 4 days and now I need to go rush take a 3 hour + test and still have no idea if I will even make the Fall enrollment. Oh and top of all of that, the head of the department calls me and does not apologize for the bad information or admit any fault for causing me this run around he simply says that the graduate board really wants everyone to take the GRE but will waive the requirement for really high GPAs.! Okay so you didn't know this a month ago and now on August 2nd this is the Gospel of the Graduate Board are you kidding me!?! I will be applying to another institution in the Spring after this roller coaster ride- Maybe "I'll Go West!"
  • Take your GI BILL somewhere else, this is coming from an AD Veteran (68w20), currently in the Reserve. I had orders/memo, I was called to an unexpected training (Surprise Med Coverage for another unit) event and I was uncommunicated for a week. This entire week I spent out in the field doing MOSQ related training. When I was finally able to power my phone and had time to explain to the professor and actually send her the orders she disregarded my orders like they were nothing. Then her "Supervisor" as in Department Chair took her side because apparently they refuse to acknowledge that I have absolutely no option when it comes to orders or training. They have successfully made me despise a class which was once my passion, great learning experience. Not to mention the ridiculously broken "Channels" of communication which are pointless to use. We (Veterans) are apparently just dollar bills in CSU.
