More going to Community College

By Regina Russo – bio | email

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - It's hard finding a parking spot these days at Cincinnati State Technical and Community College.

Enrollment in the past year grew from 8,500 last year to 11,300 this year.

Mainly because of students like 37 year old Jamie Detellem.

"Worked Fischer Homes as a superintendent, got laid off, worked out about a year out there doing side jobs and stuff. My wife and I decided I should get a degree, so that when the work flip flops, then I'll have my experience and a degree to go with it," said Detellem.

Jamie is part of the largest group of students who've enrolled recently - over the age of 25 and out of work. 

"Students looking to transfer later on to a four-year school. We've seen increases there as well," said Anthony Cruz, Dean of Enrollment.

Getting core requirements out of the way at a fraction of the cost is a good investment for Samuel Manusen, a Hughes High School grad.

"Then I can just continue as a junior and go in to the College of Pharmacy," said Manusen.

Having one of the biggest co-ops in the country students also get paid work experience when they walk in the door, working under the best in the field. Community College looking sweeter to many students these days.
