Zanesville Campus

Our Promise

Offering five associate degree programs and thirteen bachelor degree options, the Ohio University Zanesville Campus continues to provide access to a high-quality education that is affordable and convenient, with the prestige and recognition of a major research university and the comfort of a small college environment.

Since its founding, the Zanesville Campus has strived to enhance student opportunities for unparalleled, individualized support from premiere faculty in small class sizes that includes experiential learning. At the Zanesville Campus, students have access to more than 50 full-time faculty who are world-renowned in their fields and who are active in research.

Your Support

As a leader in the region, we are prepared to stand with OHIO in its quest to offer the best student-centered learning experience in the nation. And, with the economy at a turning point, now is the time to expand our initiatives and drive the economic engine in our area. With your support, we seek to expand student access and opportunity, cultivate the academic experience and expand our partnership with the Zanesville/Muskingum County communities.

We believe that you should support what matters most to you, so you can designate your gift to any area you choose. Some possibilities include:

Supporting the Zanesville Campus scholarship base -- the percentage of the student body needing financial assistance in order to reach their full potential and obtain a degree continues to increase. Given the downward trend of national and state funding for education, the Zanesville Campus depends on private support to keep higher education within reach for our students. We are dedicated to this powerful core belief and are working to increase scholarship aid, particularly for first-generation college students who have made a commitment to imagine their possibilities of earning a degree. Your support in this mission is appreciated.

Extracurricular initiatives -- In addition to scholarship support, the options to support extracurricular initiatives will benefit our current students and attract future students. Your support of experiential learning opportunities through study abroad, internships and co-ops are among the possibilities for you to consider in making a difference in the lives of our students.

Staying true to our legacy, the real impact of the Zanesville Campus will be measured not in growth and statistics, but rather in our ability to make a meaningful impact on the quality of life for residents of the Zanesville/Muskingum County communities as we prepare our graduates for the global world of the future.

Imagine the possibilities when you support this effort! Your gift – in any amount – makes a difference to our students, to our campus and to our community and beyond.
