Your Campus


Our campus is your campus. We invite the communities we serve to visit any and all of four full-service campuses in Newark, Mount Vernon, Coshocton and Pataskala, each of which is a center of education and outreach within their community.

The John and Mary Alford Center is on schedule to be substantially completed by the end of April 2021. We anticipate faculty and staff members beginning to occupy the building in May. The Advancement Office is anticipating a public ribbon-cutting ceremony in mid-August. Classes are expected to be scheduled in the building for autumn semester 2021.

Pataskala Campus Renovation Update

Construction progress on the Pataskala campus renovation is expected to be substantially complete in April 2021, with furniture and equipment installation anticipated to occur in late May to early June. Staff will move back into the building this summer, and the building will be fully operational for autumn semester 2021. The Advancement Office is anticipating a ribbon-cutting ceremony sometime in late August 2021.


COTC Pataskala Campus Renovation Scheduled

Central Ohio Technical College’s (COTC) Pataskala campus at 8660 E. Broad St. will undergo a $4.2 million renovation next year enabling the two-year college to expand academic offerings in the high-demand fields of nursing and information technology, among possible others. The renovated facility’s increased capacity will allow more students convenient access to COTC’s affordable associate degrees and certificates and help local employers fill demand for skilled workers. The college’s exceptional combination of small class sizes, faculty mentoring, required internships and rigorous academics has proven to give its graduates the competitive edge in job searches. COTC graduates find tremendous employment success with 92% of graduates employed in their field of study within six months of graduation.*

Central Ohio Technical College and The Ohio State University at Newark will continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and consider all federal, state and local health regulations to determine if this event will be held in 2021. The annual family-friendly event, jointly sponsored by COTC, Ohio State Newark and the Gilbert Reese Family Foundation, has been a long-standing free gift to the community. This will determine also whether the annual COTC and Ohio State Newark alumni celebrations will be held.
