Ohio Colleges and Universities

History students, take note: If you're considering universities in Ohio, you've got a variety of historical perspectives with which to supplement your studies. From prehistoric cultures and sacred Native American grounds, to Civil War sites, the homes of former United State presidents, and Ohio's aviation legacy straight from the Wright Brothers, the state is rich in history.

Of course, there are plenty of modern marvels and cultural events offered to students who attend Ohio colleges. The state system of higher education is composed of more than 140 colleges and universities, including 38 separately governed, state-assisted colleges and universities, according to a 2000 report by the Ohio Board of Regents. Are you ready to become a part of one of them?

Take the time to explore some of Ohio's largest cities -- from Cincinnati to Columbus to Cleveland -- to whet both your cultural and culinary appetites. Columbus is the largest city in Ohio, and the 15th largest in the United States. There you'll find an area thriving with technological advances, diverse arts, corporate headquarters of many leading organizations, and exciting sporting events.

In Columbus and throughout the rest of the state, students can get a hands-on education by visiting some of the nation's most exciting museums, which house famed works from European artists and contemporary culture. Go for a night out on the town and be entertained by a theater or playhouse performance. And finally, enjoy fine culinary masterpieces created by top chefs in and around the area.

Of course, when they're not cracking the books, students at Ohio colleges can have fun visiting the state's top attractions, among them the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Indian burial grounds at Mound City Group National Monument, Perry's Victory International Peace Memorial, the Pro Football Hall of Fame at Canton, and the homes of presidents Grant, Taft, Hayes, Harding, and Garfield.
