Our students enjoy a healthy balance of academic, spiritual, and social activities

For nearly 2,350 students from 37 states and 24 countries, the search for the right college has led them to Walsh University. Here, on the 136-acre main campus, 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.

Helping Students Discover a Sense of Purpose

Walsh's unique character and commitment to faith, together with nearly 100 academic majors and minors, award-winning athletics and vibrant student life are primary reasons that Walsh attracts students from around the globe.  With outstanding academic facilities, chapels, residence halls, a health and wellness complex, and flagship programs in the areas of health sciences, business, education, and so much more, 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. Our hope is that our students leave Walsh not only with a skillset that will transcend the lifetime of their career, but with a sense of purpose about who they are and how they will contribute to their communities, their country, and our world.
