Owens Welcomes Back Thousands of Students Monday for Spring Semester

Opening its doors for the first day of Spring Semester classes, Owens Community College will once again welcome thousands of students to the Toledo-area and Findlay-area campuses.

On Monday, January 10, Owens students will be locating their classrooms, talking with academic advisors and purchasing books, as well as registering for classes.

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 2004. 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 has completed over half of the construction for its new Findlay- area Campus. The 60-acre campus will be located near Interstate 75 and open its doors for students by Fall Semester 2005.

Owens Community College is one of the fastest-growing higher educational institutions in Ohio with 29 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.
