one of four regional campuses in The Ohio State University system,
Ohio State Lima combines the strength of the university’s programs
and faculty with the appeal of a small college atmosphere. Students
who enroll at Lima have the option to take the first two years
toward most Ohio State degrees and then move on to Columbus, or they
can choose to stay at Ohio State Lima and earn a bachelor’s degree
in biology, business, education, English, family financial
management, history, health sciences/health management, or
psychology. Students can also earn a master’s in education, the
arts, or social work. Opportunities to get involved in campus life
are just as numerous—from student clubs and organizations to
intramural and club athletic teams. The Lima campus maintains Ohio
State's Land Grant tradition of making higher education accessible
to traditional and non-traditional students, valuing diversity and
reaching out to the surrounding community.
