For nearly 3,000 students from 12 states and 24 countries, the search for the right college has led them to Walsh University in North Canton, OH. There, on a 136-acre safe, suburban campus, they find that learning transcends the classroom. A caring faculty helps students aim higher.
Word about Walsh's unique character and feel -- 50 majors, award-winning athletics and vibrant student life -- is spreading fast. The university is celebrating seven consecutive years of record-setting enrollment. Walsh's eight academic departments offer undergraduate and graduate programs in a wide variety of fields, including business, education, humanities, math, nursing, pre-law, psychology, science, theology and foreign language.
Walsh's newest undergraduate majors are in Bioinformatics and Museum Studies. In 2008, the University launched its first fully-accredited doctorate program, in physical therapy.
A Catholic university welcoming students of all faiths, Walsh continues to pursue its enduring mission: The creation of leaders through service to others. Volunteer work is not simply encouraged; it is required as part of the university's core curriculum. Walsh students build homes for Katrina victims in New Orleans; tutor and mentor schoolchildren; prepare taxes for low-income families; distribute meals; work to prevent recidivism among nonviolent offenders and perform missionary work around the world.
