Fifty years ago Ohio University extended courses and services to Lancaster and Fairfield County. Who would have guessed that students could complete masters degree programs locally or that the Lancaster Campus would expand the Universitys reach into Pickerington? Now the Lancaster Campus serves over 1700 students annually who are seeking associates, bachelors, or masters degrees. Many students join us directly from high school, many return to the classroom after taking time for employment or family, some transfer from other colleges, universities, and technical schools, and still more take courses in summer or during intersession for credits toward their programs at other schools. Services available to students include academic advising, career counseling and job placement, developmental courses, a Tutoring and Learning Resource Center, and state-certified child care for the children of our students.
