There are lots reasons why a student might choose to begin one of the 160+ majors at the Lima campus. Here are just a few:
- The Lima campus is a wonderful place to be! It's a beautiful campus; it combines the resources of a big school with the personalization of a small one; we have wonderful professors; and there is plenty to get involved in outside the classroom.
- Some students decide that they want to start at a smaller campus and get used to college life before making the move to Columbus.
- Others are undecided about what they want to study so they choose to 'test the waters' before committing to the move.
- Some students want to save money by getting the general education classes in Lima and then move to Columbus for the major-specific ones.
- And still others have friend and family ties to the Lima area and don't want to be away for 4 or more years.
The list goes on. But what it boils down to is that there is more than one 'right' way to get an Ohio State degree!
