Ohio Colleges and Universities

Colleges and Universities in Ohio

From the shores of Lake Erie to the bluegrass plains along the Ohio River, the Buckeye State offers its students a great place to live. Nightlife is hopping in college towns like Columbus and in bustling cities like Cincinnati and Cleveland. Ohio colleges and universities thrive by providing career training and degree programs in fields like business, health care and technology that can plug you into jobs that make a difference. College life is demanding, but you won't miss out on fun. You'll discover exceptional recreational opportunities away from the classroom in indoor culture and outdoor sporting life, whether it's a Columbus ballgame, the Rock and Roll Museum in Cleveland, a symphony in Cincinnati, or a hike in one of six national parks.
