January 23 was a night of positivity and pride as hundreds of Columbus Technical College students walked across the graduation stage to receive their hard-earned credentials. A total of 608 students met the qualifications for graduation and 856 credentials were awarded. These new graduates are entering the workforce or continuing their education armed with the knowledge that their alma mater boasts a 100 percent job placement rate – with more than 95 percent in-field.
In the last academic year, Columbus Tech saw an enrollment increase of about nine percent and it added several new programs. The college's enrollment continues on that upward trend and there is still more to come as qualified students may register for classes in a part-of-term "mini" semester. That registration opens on February 17.
