Columbia Southern University makes building relationships and staying connected simple. Our online student community helps graduates, students, and faculty stay engaged through a vast array of resources.

Below are the online connection resources available:

Blackboard Social

Through Blackboard Social, students can participate in discussion boards, post questions, create groups, or join an already established group. These networking opportunities help students collaborate with students of similar interests, fostering relationships and peer-to-peer professional alliances.

Schools App

Students may find other CSU students with shared interests through Schools App, a private community on Facebook for CSU students and graduates. Through this online community tool, students can connect with individuals within their career field, course study, or even other students with similar interests and activities.


The CSU LinkedIn group allows you to leverage your job search strategy by connecting with those who are also current CSU students or alumni. Fostering relationships with common backgrounds is a great way to get your foot in the door to a potential job opportunity.

CSU Communicator

The official blog, CSU Communicator, provides enticing articles on industry topics, careeer development and relevant news for students and alumni.
