Edison State Community College has followed in the footsteps of its namesake, Thomas Alva Edison, by earning a reputation for being an innovator in providing accessible, quality education and training opportunities for students. The college has grown from modest beginnings in 1973, when it offered 30 courses in a rented facility, to serving more than 4,000 students enrolled today in over 100 degree, certificate, and short-term technical certificate programs.

In addition to the 131 acres of rolling green space the Piqua Campus sits on, Edison State has locations in Greenville, Eaton, and Troy. Each regional location focuses on specific programs, with Greenville and Eaton being home to the college’s agriculture programs and Troy positioned to be the center of healthcare education in the Upper Miami Valley.

Edison State continues to thrive, experiencing growth in enrollment while adding to an already robust catalog of academic offerings. Today, students can attend classes and receive support services at one of the college’s four convenient locations, as well as online. Learn more about Edison State by visiting
