The ESC and SPARCC offices have moved to the Stark State Campus!
Please note that most GPS applications do not take you to the correct location as this time.
The building entrance is not directly on Strip Avenue. You must turn into the Stark State/Kent State Campus (easiest found by entering directly across from the Hall of Fame bridge). We are in the main entrance marked "Stark State College Advanced Technology Center."
