Cam on Campus, Communication, Community, and Culture.

Category Archives: Community

Walking on campus recently I stopped by the Kiryu Garden.

I was so happy to see some bushes start to bloom!

Entrance to the garden in bloom!

If only in spirit I still feel a connection to our sister city through the garden, and hope to revisit very soon.



Springtime in Columbus is so vibrant and wonderful.  Most noticeable are the blooms of cherry blossom trees, azelia bushes and green leafy trees beaming from the sun’s rays.

The weather was perfect for last week’s bi-city dam breach. Many people from the nearby colleges, businesses, and community enjoyed the mid day break with live music and enjoying the downtown area.

Nerdacon is a free sci-fi, anime, comic book, video game, happy nerdy time convention held by the Campus Nerds a student organization at Columbus State University. The convention has gained a large following for this year, due to the hard work of all the members promoting all over the south at other conventions and the hard work of its supporters.

I have attended all the Nerdacons since its creation and this year was my first time as a vendor. I am primarily a Japan/Asian culture enthusiast with a focus on fashion so my table had mostly hair accessories, crafts, and things I had brought back with me from Japan. I sold a good amount for my first time, and even better, made some new friends! I am definitely going to be a vendor next year with some surprises for the entire convention as well.

The convention itself was handled very well. Staff members were always present (if not for the safety of the attendees, then to help the vendors) and there was always something going on like panels and tournaments.

The best part about Nerdacon is the people, especially because it is run by students and it takes a lot of planning and financial support to run something like this in a town like Columbus (if you know, then you know).

For more information, visit and support your fellow nerds!

Today students, faculty, staff and members of the CSU community came together for Day of Service to the Highland community of Columbus, GA. The day was spent installing new floors, putting up new fences, creating a space for a playground, landscaping and many other tasks that benefited the center and the local residents.


First things first, clearing space for new flooring.


Meanwhile, a swing set gets a new coat of paint.


Beautiful floors for babies to enjoy!
