|OU-C continues to serve as a gateway to success for regional residents|
Members of the campus and local communities are invited to participate.
“As the first regional campus in the state, the Chillicothe Campus has a long legacy of serving its students and serving the region,” OU-C Dean Martin Tuck said. “It seems appropriate to pause and invite members of the community to commemorate this partnership between the campus and the region. We have a shared vision that includes upholding the quality of life for residents of this very special part of the state.”
Founded in 1946, the Chillicothe Campus is marking its 65th year this fall. Although OU-C is approaching typical retirement age, it shows no signs of slowing down. The campus experienced record enrollment during 2010-11, and the future looks promising as the 2011-12 academic year unfolds.
“Our strengths include sound financial health, strong enrollment, excellent educational facilities, a positive and respected reputation in the community and most importantly quality faculty and staff,” Tuck said. “With the advantages of a small-college setting and the resources and reputation of a great national university, Ohio University-Chillicothe offers an affordable well-rounded educational experience. I am convinced that we are poised for continued success in offering students a quality education that prepares them for rewarding careers and fulfilling lives.”
