Back in November 1970, Cincinnati State (then called Cincinnati Technical Institute) opened its first extension center at Colerain High School in conjunction with the Northwest School District.   Charles Kern, as assistant principal at Colerain High School, served as the initial coordinator and helped to set up the preliminary program.

Classes were held from 7:00-9:40PM each Monday during the first term.  Courses to be offered at the extension campus included engineering graphics, graphics arts, technical math, electronics, accounting, economics, marketing, business law, beginning typing, beginning shorthand, general chemistry, and anatomy and physiology.  Two 10 week terms attracted 275 students to Colerain High School during the 1970-1971 school year.

Today, Cincinnati State has multiple campuses, including Middletown, West Campus, Oaks Career Development Campuses, and the Workforce Development Center, as well as auxiliary locations such as the Health Professions Academy, Lower Price Hill School, MAX Technical, and Warren County Career Center.

    This seems like such a fun university! I like that there are extension campuses. When schools have that it makes me think that they are very diverse and have lots of different options for your education and career training.
