Meaningful lives; productive careers
Our calling is to cultivate the potential within each student through academic excellence, transformative experiences, and a supportive community that is grounded in Christian faith. The University of Findlay is known not only for Animal Science, Equestrian Studies, health professions, and science programs but also for cultivating the next generation of business leaders, educators, and innovative thinkers through a dedication to experiential learning inside and outside the classroom.
Established in 1882 through a joint partnership between the city of Findlay and the Churches of God, General Conference, the University of Findlay has over 80 majors leading to baccalaureate degrees and offers 11 master’s degrees, plus doctorate degrees in Education, Education in School Psychology, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, and Pharmacy. Nearly 4,000 students from approximately 35 countries are enrolled at Findlay. With an international student population of nearly 300, Findlay’s campus offers global experiences to students from all over the world. 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 more than 100 student organizations, including special interest clubs, student media, student government, performing arts groups, service clubs, academic honors organizations, spiritual life groups, and Greek sororities and fraternities. Club sports and over 20 intramural sports keep a competitive spirit alive. 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 participates in 24 intercollegiate sports and is a member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division II, competing in the Great Midwest Athletic Conference (G-MAC). Both of our equestrian teams are members of the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA).
Eight traditional residence halls—along with townhouses, apartments, and cottages—are available to meet students’ housing needs. Our active housing and residence life programs help students make the most of their time on campus.
