In the Fall 2013 semester, there were 5,513 women enrolled at Cincinnati State (49% of the total student population).  Do you know how many women were enrolled in the very first class at Cincinnati State (then called Cincinnati Cooperative School of Technology- CCST) in the Fall of 1966?

According to this Cincinnati Enquirer article from November 5, 1966, out of the 70 total students at CCST, there were only 9 females (less than 13%).  However, the school was very interested in encouraging more women to enroll, as evidenced by the fact that Carol Kastens was not only the author of the article but also a CCST student enrolled in the data processing program.

Thanks to these amazing 9 women who helped pave the way for all the opportunities that exist for everyone at Cincinnati State today.
