For nearly 3000 students from 27 states and 37 countries, the search for the right college has led them to Walsh University. Here, on the 136-acre main campus and satellite campuses in Akron, Medina, Canfield, and just outside of Rome, Italy, they have found that learning transcends the classroom, caring faculty help students aim higher, and leadership requires more than intellect. As an independent, Catholic university, we encourage individuals to act in accordance with reason guided by the example and teachings of Jesus Christ. Our aim is to develop students' mind, body and spirit - this is Walsh's distinguished tradition and the heart of its appeal.

Word about Walsh's unique character and feel, together with its 60 undergraduate major programs, award-winning athletics and vibrant student life, is spreading fast. This year, the university is celebrating nine consecutive years of record-setting enrollment.
With outstanding academic facilities, chapel and residence halls, a new health and wellness complex, and unique programs in areas such as bioinformatics and museum studies, students have a wide variety of options to make their mark at Walsh University.
In his call to Catholic higher education, Ex Corde Ecclesiae, Pope John Paul II said the objective of a Catholic University is to assure in an institutional manner the Christian manner in the university world confronting the great problems of society and culture. Walsh University does just that. As 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 school children, prepare taxes for low-income families, distribute meals, work to prevent recidivism among nonviolent offenders and perform missionary work around the world.
While students' involvement in communities here and abroad takes many forms, every service experience imparts important life lessons that build character and leadership. They help to make Jesus Christ known wherever they go.
We hope that you consider Walsh University as your choice in your pursuit of Catholic higher education.
