Come Celebrate!

Zane State College is celebrating its 50th anniversary on September 19, but join us for the community celebration on September 21 from 3 p.m. – dusk.

Every high school student in attendance counts as an entry into a raffle for their high school to win the grand prize: a 3-D Printer!

Activities for all ages will take place … including fireworks after dark! We look forward to seeing students, alumni, past and present employees, families, and friends. Everyone is welcome to have FUN, eat good FOOD, listen to MUSIC, and ENJOY our Zanesville campus on the Campus Green. Rain or shine, our goal is to make sure everyone has a GOOD TIME as we celebrate our past and look forward to the next 50 YEARS. Details here.

Please take a moment to step back in time to watch this video that commemorates our dedication to the community over the past 50 years!
