Ohio Christian University to Offer Degree Programs at the PACCAR Medical Education Center Beginning in 2012

Ohio Christian University has recently finalized an agreement for use of classroom space with the PACCAR Medical Education Center in Chillicothe, Ohio.  The PACCAR Center, located in front of Adena Hospital on U.S. 23, offers state-of-the-art classrooms and facilities.  

Ohio Christian will continue offering its adult education program at Brookside Church at 2215 Egypt Pike in Chillicothe. The PACCAR Center facility provides OCU the opportunity for further expansion.

OCU President Mark Smith stated, “We are grateful to the PACCAR Center for this opportunity!”  Smith added, “OCU currently offers convenient associate and bachelor degree programs to more than 130 busy adult students in Chillicothe.  The partnership with the PACCAR Center will enable us to provide expanded services to adult students throughout Ross County.” 

During the months of January through May 2012, five OCU cohorts are planned for the PACCAR Center.  To learn more about OCU degree programs in Chillicothe, contact Jammie Wilhelm at jwilhelm@ohiochristian.edu.
