Good Afternoon Chamber Members,
I have some exciting news to share with you. Here at Columbia College-Lexington we are growing and as part of our growth we will be offering our first two face-to-face classes starting on February 27th.  Of course every class Columbia offers is available online but we feel it important to offer in-seat classes for our students who feel more comfortable in that setting. 
Also as part of Columbia's commitment to keep education affordable the school has extended a FREE FEBRUARY Campaign waiving the application fee for those interested in attending Columbia College. I am on stand by to assist our community members in any way I can to help them achieve their academic goals and dreams.
