Nestled within over a hundred acres of the grounds of the Sisters of St. Francis in Sylvania, Ohio since 1958, Lourdes University has seen exponential growth of enrollment within the last few decades, and now serves almost two thousand undergraduates and almost four hundred graduate students. Lourdes is a liberal arts college--with a low 11-to-1 student-to-faculty ratio—that emphasizes reverence and service; undergraduates must complete 20 service-learning hours before receiving a degree. Their slate of over twenty undergraduate majors includes concentrations in behavioral science, theological studies, art history, criminal justice and more. Students have plenty of resources at their disposal at Lourdes, such as laptops and tutoring services at the Academic Support Center, and a dedicated Student Wellness Center that employs three doctors on-site. Lourdes’ community outreach efforts include exciting summer camps for regional children, plus shows at the modern, 3D-equipped Appold Planetarium, and other special events as coordinated by their Parent Institute. All this, and athletics, too: the Lourdes Gray Wolves compete in lacrosse, volleyball, golf, cross country and lots more sports. It’s no wonder Princeton Review consistently recognizes Lourdes University as one of the top ten Best Colleges in the Midwest!
