From staff reports
The Chillicothe Campus will again have a presence at the Ross County Fair, staffing a booth in the multi-purpose building during the event this week. Student Services members and others will be on hand to share information about the campus’ academic programs and offerings with area residents.
The campus’ engagement with the county fair emphasizes OU-C’s role as an engaged community member and allows the campus to reach out to residents at the popular event, which attracts a wide range of individuals from throughout the region.
Beyond supporting student-recruitment efforts, campus members are able to answer people’s general questions about the college application and admissions process. This type of effort supports the campus’ role as a regional campus in serving as a gateway to higher education and the benefits of a college education in upholding the quality of life for area residents.
These have been banner days for the Chillicothe Campus. A total of 513 students earned their associate, bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Ohio University while attending OU-C during the 2012-13 academic year, the highest number in the history of the campus’ Recognition of Graduation event.
