Colleges in Ohio

The state of Ohio is home to a The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and a number of excellent institutions of higher education. There are 135 colleges in Ohio, 66 public and 69 private, offering a wide range of programs and majors. Ohio has both small schools (defined as less than 2000 students) and "very large" ones (10,000 or more students) and everything in between, including community colleges, in urban and rural environments.


Ohio State University is the flagship public research institution in the state. Located in the heart of Columbus, this massive university is the epitome of a big school in an urban environment. It ranks as the 18th best public university according to the 2012 edition of the U.S. News & World Report, and boasts many renowned fields of undergraduate study, including those in the Fisher College of Business and the political science department.


The main campus of Ohio University is located in Athens. Founded in 1804, OU is the state's first university, and the ninth oldest in the United States. In addition to offering more than 250 areas of undergraduate study, the Ohio University campus is often cited as one of the most beautiful in the country.


If you're interested in a smaller college community, take a look at Wittenberg University. Located in Springfield, Wittenberg, or "Witt" as students affectionately call it, is home to only about 2,000 students. Witt students describe themselves as active, quirky, and involved. Notable Wittenberg alumni include Ronald Li, founder of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, Robert J. Marshall, president of the Lutheran Church of America, and Edwina Williams, mother of the playwright Tennessee Williams.


Other Ohio colleges include University of Dayton, Kent State University, Xavier University in Cincinnati, University of Cincinnati, Miami University in Oxford, University of Akron, University of Toledo, and many, many more.
