Owens Welcomes Back Thousands of Students Monday for Fall Semester

Opening its doors for the first day of Fall Semester classes, Owens Community College will once again welcome students in recording-breaking numbers.

As classes begin on Monday, August 23, Owens Fall Semester enrollment is expected to surpass last year's figures on the College's Toledo-area and Findlay- area campuses. Such an accomplishment will mark 29 consecutive semesters of enrollment increases.

Throughout the day, students will be locating their classrooms, talking with academic advisors and purchasing books, as well as registering for classes.

Serving as Northwest Ohio's number one choice in higher education, Owens was recognized as the fastest-growing academic institution in the state of Ohio last year. According to an Ohio Board of Regents study, Owens was ranked as the leader in 2003 Fall Semester headcount enrollment among all of Ohio's public colleges and universities.

To accommodate the record number of students, the College opened an $11 million Center for Fine and Performing Arts last year on the Toledo-area Campus. In addition, Owens broke ground for a new Fire and Police Training Center for Homeland Security in April. The Center will be the only state-of-the-art facility of this magnitude within the Midwest United States.

Continuing to enhance educational opportunities for students in the Hancock County area, the College broke ground last fall for its new Findlay-area Campus. The new facility will be located near Interstate 75 and open its doors for students by Fall Semester 2005.

Owens Community College is the fastest-growing higher educational institution in Ohio with 28 consecutive semesters of enrollment increases. On the Toledo-area and Findlay-area campuses, Owens serves more than 44,000 credit and non-credit students making it the number one choice for Northwest Ohio college students. Owens is committed to providing small classes, personal attention and unmatched affordability. Owens Community College offers over 130 program areas in Agriculture, Business, Fine and Performing Arts, Health, Public Service, Skilled Trades, Industrial and Engineering Technologies. Owens students also can earn the first two years of a bachelor's degree with a smooth transfer to any area four-year college or university.
