Columbus Colleges and Universities

Columbus is Georgia's third-largest city, and students of Columbus colleges and universities enjoy the amenities, employment, and recreation opportunities of this vibrant and growing community. The Chattahoochee River provides the backdrop to the River Walk, one of the city's most popular leisure activities. Sports fans in Columbus enjoy the city's South Commons Complex, a multi-use facility featuring a civic center, football and softball stadiums. In 1996, the city was proud to be the Olympic venue for the Women's Fastpitch Softball competition.
