Presidents & History

History

Washington Technical CollegeOver the years, Washington State has evolved from a small technical institute – Washington Technical College – to a highly-respected, accredited community college. From an initial enrollment of only 60 students, whose classes were held in the basement of an elementary school, to a current enrollment of more than 2,000 students, Washington State offers a variety of educational opportunities to students and members of the surrounding communities. Nestled on 180 acres of rolling, wooded hills in Marietta, OH, Washington State Community College is an aesthetically beautiful and inviting campus.

Whether one chooses an associate degree or program or a specialized certification, classes and training at Washington State can directly lead to a seamless transfer to a four-year institution or to direct employment opportunities. Internships and co-ops provide part of the well-rounded education Washington State offers, as well.

The campus houses three academic buildings, a library and a child development center. Health sciences technologies constitute the largest academic division on campus, followed by business technologies and industrial technologies, respectively.

In recent years, Washington State has also grown in reputation as a center for the arts and cultural offerings. The Evergreen Arts & Humanities Series, along with the River City Film Series, provides a wealth of cultural enrichment for local and regional communities. In addition, the very popular Motor Madness, sponsored by the automotive/diesel program, is an annual event that draws many people to campus each year.

Washington State is committed to the growth and vitality of the community. Through quality, affordable education and training opportunities, cultural activities, and community service, the College enriches the lives of its students and their families, inspiring people to reach their full potential.
