2020 will be a landmark year for the University of Northwestern Ohio, as it celebrates its Centennial anniversary. In honor of the upcoming centennial, UNOH is constructing a clock tower to be placed at the center of campus.
The clock will be moved into place on Tuesday, November 12th at approximately 10:00am. Standing 16 feet tall, placed upon a 4 foot base, the clock tower will mark each hour with a chime and in style as it was designed to match the university colors and appearance.
Founded in 1920, in downtown Lima, UNOH, formerly known as the Northwestern School of Commerce, focused solely on Business Administration and secretarial degrees. In the 1970s, the school began to offer Technical Training in the Automotive and Diesel fields.
In 1992, the school made history by launching the first High Performance Motorsports Degree Program in the world. From there, the growth and expansion of this educational institution took off. Collegiate athletics was brought back to campus, the number of students educated in any given year tops 4,000, and UNOH has taught students from all 50 states and 61 countries in its history.
Please join us as we mount the clock tower onto its base between the Administration and Barnes & Noble Bookstore buildings on the UNOH campus. UNOH President Dr. Jeffrey A. Jarvis will be available for comments and interviews during this process.
