OAES's First Campus.png
Ohio Agriculture Experiment Station's first campus in Columbus, OH in 1887.

The detail above the door shows the building was finished in 1896.

The old administration building, one of the first building’s completed on the Madison Hill, still stands today.

OARDC’s Wooster campus is located just south of the town and features Secrest Arboretum, ATI, and BioHio Research Park.

The sign shows the official partnership between ATI and OSU. OARDC also plays a role, because OSU evolved out of OARDC’s initial program in Columbus.

Although ATI was founded long after OARDC, they share a similar commitment to agriculture and the environment with their tie to OSU’s College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences.

ATI’s campus is located within the environs of OARDC, which provides easy access to their greenhouses, test plots, and livestock.

ATI has updated its areas of study and majors to provide students the most updated options in agricultural learning and research including dairy cattle production and management and biotechnology.

First Wooster OARDC Campus.png
The original buildings of Wooster’s OARDC campus included laboratories, a creamery, a dairy barn, and greenhouses.

When OAES originally moved to Wooster none of the buildings were completed yet, but the campus eventually began to take shape in 1893.
