The Pickerington Center was established to serve the Northwest quadrant of Fairfield County and the greater Columbus area. Students choose to attend the Pickerington Center for a number of reasons. Both recent high school graduates who want to attend a school close to home or working adults wanting to complete degrees attend classes at the Pickerington Center. They often go on to take courses at the Lancaster Campus or the Athens Campus.
