Owens Enrollment Continues to Climb

  Owens Community College has achieved a Spring Semester enrollment of 13,514 students, marking an 11 percent increase over the Spring Semester 1998 enrollment of 12,204.

  There are 11,970 students on the Toledo-area Campus, up from 10,662 last spring (a 12 percent increase). The Findlay Campus headcount is 1,544, compared to 1,542 last spring.

  The full-time equivalency (FTE) for both campuses is 3,537 - up 9 percent from Spring Semester 1998 (3,243).

  This marks the 14th consecutive semester of enrollment increases at Owens Community College.

  Daniel H. Brown, President, attributed the enrollment growth to several technical degree areas, as well as the Arts & Science programs that offer students the first two years of a bachelor's degree at half the cost of a four-year college or university.

  There also has been significant growth in the College's Center for Development and Training (CDT) with an increase in industrial training. CDT serves the needs of business and industry with training in skilled trades, customized training, workforce development, apprenticeship programs and more.

  "We continue to demonstrate our commitment to meeting the needs of the communities we serve by providing a high quality college education at an affordable cost," President Brown said. "And the community is responding."
