Ohio Dominican University spans more than 64 beautiful acres in Columbus, Ohio. Founded in 1911 as the College of Saint Mary of the Springs, Ohio Dominican University’s liberal arts curriculum teaches skills valuable throughout life and any career – critical thinking, proficient writing, and clear communication. The university’s nationally acclaimed humanities program is at the core of every student’s academic study and Ohio Dominican takes pride in how the university celebrates diversity and individuality.
