What begins at OCU Changes the World
So, you are exploring your options...
There are thousands of colleges and universities that offer a quality education, but on many campuses students are just a number. Ohio Christian University is different. As a regionally accredited university, OCU is committed to academic excellence, but our commitment doesn’t end there. We will spend time getting to know you and investing in your life.
As President, I enjoy traveling with student groups and spending time with the leaders of tomorrow. My wife and I even invite students into our home throughout the year. Whether it’s sharing a home-cooked meal or opening our doors for an informal gathering, we look for ways to invest in the life of every student.
Don’t be a number. Come to Ohio Christian University. Let us help you reach your life dreams and educational goals. We train leaders to change the world!
See you soon,
Dr. Mark A. Smith
