Last year marked the 40th anniversary of Ohio State ATI's first graduation class of 110 students. We'd like to give you an idea of some of the changes that have occurred in the past 40 years and to that end have put together a video overview of Ohio State ATI's second decade. We hope it will spark some memories that you might like to share with us.
During this decade at Ohio State ATI...
In 1992, Dr. Garrison retired, and Dr. Bill Anderson became Ohio State ATI's third director.
In 1996, Ohio State ATI began offering its first Associate of Science (transfer) degrees, designed to provide a seamless transition for Ohio State ATI students to CFAES in Columbus. The addition of transfer degrees to the curriculum brought about significant enrollment growth, necessitating the construction of additional student housing. Applewood Village Apartments opened in 1997.
Ohio State ATI held its 25th commencement exercises in 1998, and in 1999, enrollment reached an all-time high of 1,031 students. In August of that year, ground was broken for two new facilities: the $1.2 million Equine Center and the $4 million Center for Education and Economic Development (CEED).
