With less than 25% of the student body from Ohio, Case has become more of a national university than a local one. Similarly, with less than half of the student body in undergraduate programs, Case has also become more of a graduate school than an undergraduate one.

None-the-less, with around 5,000 undergraduate students and 82% of them living on campus, a vibrant Greek system, state-of-the-art facilities and a nationally ranked set of STEM and business programs, Case is one impressive institution.

Particularly well respected for their Nursing and Engineering Programs as well as their schools of Law, Medicine, Dentistry, and Business, Case has some of the best professional programs in the state. It hasn’t hurt that they have taken advantage of their University Circle location in Cleveland near many cultural, business, educational, and health care institutions in order to provide students clinical, internship, co-op, and research opportunities.

Case has plenty to be proud of!

Ohio’s private colleges with strong professional programs: Ohio Northern University

By | Ohio's private colleges with strong professional programs | No Comments

Since 1871, Ohio Northern University has been focused on integrating a strong foundation in the liberal arts with a commitment to developing “competent and employable practitioners.” Very few institutions in Ohio effectively combine small size, teaching focus, highly rated professional undergraduate and graduate programs, liberal arts core, and an active set of co-curricular options on a beautiful residential campus. ONU does!

ONU is organized into five colleges (law, pharmacy, business, engineering, and arts & sciences). Their structure, dedicated college buildings, deans, and relevant accreditations reveal clearly their emphasis on, and commitment to, excellence in the development of competent professionals. Their liberal arts core is evidence of their “growing”  creative, critical thinking, and ethical graduates. Committing early in their history to “practical education,” ONU side stepped the “liberal arts versus professional program” identity confusion that, at times, confounds so many of Ohio’s private institutions.

With over 3,600 students, excellent academics, and a vibrant student life, ONU has a lot to offer.
