Cincinnati State Middletown's First Day a Success
Thursday, August 30, 2012 9:57:08 AM - Middletown Ohio

Wednesday marked the first day of classes on the Cincinnati State Middletown campus. The opening day of Butler County's first community college went very smoothly and successfully. School officials hoped to have 200 new students admitted and taking classes at the Middletown campus by the end of the first academic year and were pleased to have 185 new students registered for classes by the start. More than 350 students are expected to attend classes in Middletown this fall (including students who are not new and those who attend the school's main campus in Clifton).

The opening of the Middletown campus in downtown has hopes of bringing more people to the school's location and resulting in a more prosperous downtown. Some already say that downtown is more alive than it has been in the past decade and things are continuing to pick-up.
