About this event

The Ohio State University at Newark and Central Ohio Technical College (COTC) invite the public to join us at a public ribbon-cutting ceremony and the official opening of the newly renovated Louella Hodges Reese Hall. 

This $26.3 million renovation began in 2022 and has been a source of excitement for the campus and community at large. With an increased focus on high-quality teaching, learning and co-curricular environments, the renovated facility will become an inviting location for study and engagement, offering a multitude of exciting future possibilities.

Hodges Hall originally opened as Founder’s Hall, the oldest and largest building on the shared campus. This renovation has been entirely in keeping with the generous spirit that’s been at the core of Ohio State Newark and COTC from the beginning. The building has been renamed after Louella Reese in grateful acknowledgment of one of the collocated schools’ most enduring supporters. Whether through scholarships, capital improvements or programming, Reese’s deep commitment to improving the campus and community has never wavered and is a model for all.
