Give to Ohio State



As 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.
