OWENS SETS ENROLLMENT RECORDS FOR EIGHTH CONSECUTIVE SEMESTER

   Owens Community College has set enrollment records for the eighth consecutive semester with 10,640 students enrolled for the 1997 Spring Semester which began the week of January 13. According to President Daniel H. Brown, the enrollment - a combined growth on the College's Toledo-area and Findlay campuses of nearly 10 percent - represents Owens’ continuing commitment to meeting the higher education and workforce training needs of Northwest Ohio.

   "For 32 years, we have strived to provide Northwest Ohio with a college environment that offers high quality academic instruction with small classes and a great deal of personal attention. This has been accomplished with an added commitment to keeping our tuition costs affordable, " President Brown said. "Northwest Ohio residents as well as the business and industry sector continue to find our environment advantageous."

   For Spring Semester, the Toledo-area Campus has enrolled 9,100 students, marking an 11.25 percent increase over the same time the previous year. The Findlay Campus has seen an increase of 2.4 percent as compared to the same time last year with 1,540 students.
