MARION CAMPUS

MARION CAMPUS

As one of four regional campuses in The Ohio State University system, Ohio State Marion extends the Ohio State educational experience to North Central Ohio. At Marion, students enjoy small classes in an intimate college setting, while getting a world-class education. Students have the flexibility to choose what works for them—whether that means attending classes full-time, part-time, during the day, or in the evenings—while completing coursework toward one of Ohio State’s 170 bachelor degree programs. In addition, six bachelor’s degree programs and one master’s degree program can be completed entirely at Ohio State Marion. The campus boasts a talented faculty committed to teaching, research, and service and dedicated to providing an unmatched academic experience. All permanent faculty on campus hold terminal degrees in their respective disciplines and the student/teacher ratio is approximately 20 to 1. Student activities are varied and include student government, clubs, sports, organizations, and publication committees. Marion students can also find a number of services, programs, and opportunities that will transform their university experience from being exclusively a place of academic learning to a laboratory for life.
