A Rich History
A true community effort, Ohio State Newark was founded in 1957. Community members gathered to paint, build and carry furniture into a remodeled barn, the campuses' temporary first home. The first classes took place in the evenings at Newark High School with 80 students and eight faculty members.

By 1960, 46 scholarships worth $12,000 were awarded to students. In 1966, seven thousand Licking County residents pledged over $1 million toward the cost of land and construction of the first campus building. In 2010, local philanthropists J. Gilbert and Louella Reese challenged the community by matchng all gifts up to $10 million; by the campaign's conclusion in 2012, nearly $21 million had been raised for the Next Generation Challenge, which provides scholarships.

Today, the campus features 10 buildings, including a gymnasium and one residence hall. The John L.
and Christine Warner Library & Student Center opened in autumn 2008.

Partnership with Central Ohio Technical College (COTC)
The Ohio State University at Newark and Central Ohio Technical College are proud of the partnership that they have forged in offering an outstanding array of educational opportunities.

At Central Ohio Technical College, students can earn one of 31 associate degrees or certificates, or gain skills needed for career advancement. Many students attend a two-year institution to gain hands-on, technical experience and begin working in the field, or to transfer those credits toward a bachelor's program. COTC offers a low faculty-to-student ratio that appeals to many students. Headcount enrollment at COTC (including extended campus locations) reached 3,000 in autumn of 2005.

Both Ohio State Newark and COTC pride themselves on providing the student with personal attention, state-of-the-art technology labs, and credentialed and experienced faculty on a beautiful, technologically sophisticated campus. Choose the institution that best suits your needs and head down the path to success.

The University System of Ohio
To increase collaboration and cooperation among public colleges and universities, in August 2007 Ohio Governor Ted Strickland directed Ohio Board of Regents Chancellor Eric Fingerhut to establish The University System of Ohio, which includes 14 public universities with 24 regional campuses, 23 community and technical colleges, and an adult workforce education and training network operating in more than 200 locations. With a mission to provide affordable, high quality higher education opportunities for all Ohioans, programs and curricula are designed to meet Ohioans' individual and collective needs for the 21st century. Governor Strickland also directed Chancellor Fingerhut to develop a 10-year plan for The University System of Ohio, which will set clear benchmarks and a timeline for advancing a collective system of higher education in the state.
