About Campus
Co‐located with Marion Technical College on 187 acres of land, including an eleven‐acre reconstructed native prairie, The Ohio State University at Marion was founded in 1957 and throughout its history has closely partnered with its communities. As a result, several successful fundraising and capital campaigns have yielded great benefits to the campus, including over $1 million in aid and scholarships annually for students, financial support for the GoBuck$ initiative with the Marion City Schools (through which K‐12 students meeting social and academic expectations earn tuition vouchers for Ohio State Marion), and support for the newly opened Science and Engineering building and a bike/walking path around campus. Ohio State Marion is the higher education partner for the GEAR UP grant at Marion City Schools. First rate faculty, including a long list of University Alumni Distinguished Teaching Award winners, play a critical role in extending access to The Ohio State University to students seeking the unique experiences offered at Ohio State Marion. The new Science and Engineering Building supports the first and most of the second year of the university’s general engineering curriculum and a newly introduced four‐year degree in biology.
