The University is known not only for science, health professions, Animal Science, and Equestrian Studies programs but also for cultivating the next generation of business leaders, educators, and innovative thinkers through a dedication to experiential learning, both in and outside the classroom.

In addition, our faculty and staff strive to create a supportive community in which our students grow and find their path to a meaningful life and productive career.

Students may participate in any of nearly 100 student organizations, including special-interest clubs, student media, student government, performing arts groups, service clubs, academic honorary organizations, spiritual life groups, and Greek sororities and fraternities. Club sports and 18 intramural sports keep the competitive spirit alive on campus.

The fine arts flourish on campus with a variety of theatre productions, art exhibits, and vocal and instrumental music concerts that offer creative outlets and training for students.

The University of Findlay participates in 24 intercollegiate sports and is a member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division II competing in the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC).
