OU-Chillicothe Dean Looks To Branch Campus Future

Presented By Classic Brands

The dean of Ohio University-Chillicothe says the regional campus will continue to be a community partner on everything from general college education to being a resource for business.

Roberta Milliken was a special guest on #LitterMediaLIVE Special Edition on Thursday, speaking with interviewer Mike Smith.

Milliken detailed the continuing mission of Ohio University branch campuses and the commitment moving forward, after hearing from new OU President Hugh Sherman, who visited both the Chillicothe and Lancaster regional campuses over the last week. Milliken says there are distinct things about each regional campus, which President Sherman got to see first-hand.

While there about one dozen baccalaureate degrees still offered at OU-Chillicothe, Milliken says there seems to be more desire for post-graduate work from students that would take them on to the Athens campus.

OU-Chillicothe recently celebrated their 75th anniversary.

Second Street Becoming Two-Way

Presented By Hometown-Motors, Inc.

The long-awaited opening of Second Street in Chillicothe for two-way traffic flow, begins today October 21st.

To see a view from above, watch the Litter Drone coverage above Second and Paint Streets:

Chillicothe City crews worked overnight, putting the finishing touches on asphalt paving, street lining/markings and signage.

Some of the overnight work was using a technique called “Themoplastic” into the crosswalk painting. This applies tiny glass beads into the paint, which illuminates when vehicle lights shine on it, making it much easier for motorists to see the painting lines, such as in crosswalks.

The new two-way Second Street goes the entire length of the street, although metered parking will only extend between the alley at the Majestic Theatre to the alley next to the Elks Lodge.
