eci-logo.pngWhen you started at Lima Technical College or Rhodes State College for the first time, you had something special. Within you was a drive to move your life into the future. That drive became a dream as you began to see a picture of what the future could hold. And that dream has become your impact on your community.

Now, the Rhodes State Alumni Family is inviting you to DREAM AGAIN.

It is our hope that the same drive that led you to the College would lead you back here to engage with us in launching our future together.

Please take a moment to explore what is happening at the College and how you can not only be involved, but also a catalyst for amazing things that will impact you, your families, and your community. 

How Can I Help?

As an alumni of Rhodes or LTC, you can engage with our network of 19.000+ alumni family members and support our future by becoming an Ambasssador, by volunteering your time, and/or by browsing the Educate Collaborate Innovate Case for Support.
