Northwest State Community College was founded when the Ohio Board of Regents approved the formation of Four County Technical Institute in 1968. The College offered its first classes one year later. In 1972, the College moved to its current location and was renamed Northwest Technical College.

In 1994, Northwest State officially became a community college. This enabled the College to offer Associate of Arts and Associate of Science programs that could easily transfer into a four-year degree program at partnering colleges.

Since that time, the Northwest State campus has continued to grow. Today, the College offers classes at the main campus in Archbold, Ohio, as well as various satellite locations.

The Center for Lifelong Learning at Northwest State offers non-credit programming that is designed especially for those who are at least 50 years of age and/or retired. The Center provides half-day, full-day and multiple-day programs and trips on a variety of topics and interests.

Each semester, the Center for Lifelong Learning plans two major activities: an all-day seminar on a current topic and a travel-study experience. The longer travel-study, spring semester, has taken lifelong learners to most major cities east of the Mississippi. The fall over-nighter explores sites in Ohio, Indiana, or Michigan.

Both are preceded by a campus class previewing the significance of the destination. The chartered motor coach becomes a traveling classroom. The trips are arranged on a non-profit basis by Cecily Rohrs, Certified Tour Professional.

All events are on a pay-as-you-participate basis. Lifelong learners have College library access and 350+ receive the CLL newsletter. 

Whether it is development for your workforce, learning for you and your family, or classes that enhance your life - Northwest State Community College is there for you - right here in Henry County!
