CSU’s First Choice Campaign raises nearly $120 million

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Columbus State University celebrated the close of its First Choice Campaign on Thursday.

The gala took place at the RiverMill Event Center.

First Choice was launched in 2012 and set a goal of raising $100 million. The success of the campaign has been instrumental in funding new CSU projects including, the Frank D. Brown Hall, Bo Bartlett Center, and more than 40 endowments for student scholarships, faculty position, and program support.

“The history of Columbus and Columbus State University is one of partnerships,” said CSU President Chris Markwood. “We work together to make things people think are unbelievable. That is the history that has existed in this town for some time.”

Nearly $120 million was raised as the campaign comes to an end.
