When we say "community college", we mean we want to serve the community. We are here to provide value to you as a community, and we take that responsibility seriously. We offer many free services, so keep reading—we don’t want them to be a secret!
Connect Ohio has implemented a statewide broadband training program called Every Citizen Online (ECO) in order to increase broadband adoption in Ohio. Southern State is part of the free computer training sessions at community colleges, libraries and educational centers throughout Ohio. This free program teaches new users how to access the internet and includes three sessions, two hours in length, covering computer and internet basics and discussions about how broadband can be helpful in daily life.
