School Notes:

Owens Community College began as a technical institute under the jurisdiction of the Ohio Department of Education. The first classes were offered in Toledo on September 13, 1965 with less than 200 students. Two years later, in 1967, the College was chartered by the Ohio Board of Regents as a technical college. In 1983, Owens Community College opened its Findlay-area campus at Cory and Davis streets. In 1994, the College was chartered as a comprehensive state community college with a district encompassing Lucas, Wood and Hancock counties, and parts of Ottawa and Sandusky counties. Owens continues to offer an affordable, quality education to those who are seeking an associate degree, continuing education courses and professional development. Owens Community College allows you to complete the first two years of a bachelor's degree and then transfer to any four-year college or university. To enhance this process, Owens has cultivated transfer agreements with over 20 area four-year colleges and universities. The Owens Community College Toledo-area campus covers more than 280 acres and is located near downtown Toledo. The new 60-acre Findlay-area campus is located at 3200 Bright Road on Findlay's northeast side. Between our two campuses in Toledo and Findlay, Owens serves over 45,000 credit and non-credit students annually, yet our average class size is just 15 students. Owens Community College offers more than 150 program areas in Agriculture, Business, Fine and Performing Arts, Health, Public Service, Skilled Trades, Transportation and Technology Pre-Nursing, Skilled Trades and Criminal Justice are among the fastest-growing programs at Owens Community College.
