The Ohio State University, Lima, also referred to as Ohio State Lima is a regional campus of the The Ohio State University located in Lima, Ohio. Its 565-acre (2.29 km2) campus is located in Lima, 80 miles (130 km) south of Toledo, Ohio. It offers over 140 courses and 12 bachelor degree programs in science and liberal Arts. Ten of twelve programs are four-year programs at Lima. Two of them are baccalaureate completion programs. In addition to regional accreditation, Ohio State Lima has baccalaureate program accreditation with NCATE. Students can start at Lima and finish their degrees at The Ohio State University, Columbus with one of Ohio State’s 170+ majors. The Ohio State University at Lima offers over 20 student clubs and organizations. There are also 12 intramural and club athletic teams. Dean John Snyder is retiring at the end of the current (2012-2013) academic year, and the decision has been made not to replace him immediately, but to have a part-time dean for the immediate future. This raises questions about the long-term viability of the campus and whether there are plans to close it, as have been previously suggested.
The Lima Campus Library has 76,000 volumes and 200+ journal subscriptions. Library databases also provide access to thousands of online journals. The University shares the campus with James A. Rhodes State College.
