Week of Welcome (WOW) 2016: #PoweredByTheHub

Aug 29, 2016 by Kimberly C Rhyan

The Week of Welcome (WOW) is an exciting and informative series of events to help students begin their journey at Columbus State. WOW includes seminars, socials, previews and other activities to expose students to all of the opportunities that exist outside of the classroom to enhance each student’s college experience. The events are free and sponsored by various campus departments and clubs.  (Columbus and Delaware Campuses both have similar Weeks of Welcome, but have different schedules.)

Explore Campus!

Are you new to campus or just need help finding your class? The Welcome Team is located strategically around campus to support your adjustment to college life and answer your questions. Attend a campus tour and meet the Student Ambassadors! Enter to win daily giveaways!

Track your Involvement!

Keep track of your involvement with the Columbus State Hub! The Columbus State Hub is a web-based platform (powered by OrgSync) that allows you to connect with several organizations, departments, and students on campus! You can join a club or department's Hub page and learn all about their activities, communicate with members and sign up to attend campus events.

Events that you've attended, every organization that you've joined, officer position that you've held,  or hours spent volunteering can all be shared as a "Co-Curricular Transcript". These are extremely helpful when reflecting on your out-of-classroom learning and preparing for interviews for those co-ops or "real-world job." Employers want to know that you did more than just attend class (although, we highly recommend that too).
