Formerly known as Belmont Technical College, Belmont College (BC) in St. Clairsville, Ohio serves about two thousand students via over forty associate’s degrees and professional certification programs. Students can major within any of nine academic categories, from health sciences and early childhood education to public safety and information technology. The library here was recently updated with important new databases, including over 4,800 publications pertaining to the energy industry alone. Belmont provides comprehensive career placement assistance, as well as a large suite of financial aid options—applicants vie for over twenty types of scholarships! And advisors help every student track their education from day one, via formation of a Belmont Degree Completion Plan. There’s also a chapter of national honor society Phi Theta Kappa on-campus, or students can also get involved in any of several program-specific organizations, like the Building Preservation Student Association. When you consider the power of the Belmont experience, it becomes clear: eastern Ohio couldn’t ask for anything more!
