The Greek playwright Sophocles wrote "One word frees us of all the weight and pain of life: That word is love."

Ohio Dominican has always been a place where the truth of this ancient Greek wisdom is all around. As a place with its roots in the Catholic tradition, love abounds on Sunbury Road.

The love of Christ that permeates our mission and our daily lives leads to love of neighbor and the love of knowledge that is expressed in our motto: "To contemplate truth and share with others the fruits of this contemplation.

This special quality of Ohio Dominican probably helps explain why so many who came here drawn by a love of knowledge ended up finding that other kind of love that has inspired the poets through the centuries.

For some, they were college sweethearts. For others, they didn't meet until after graduation, but in the end, they found themselves living happily ever after - as Double Dominicans.

It is widely believed that Janet Leppert (Class of 1939) wrote the words and Sister Francis Borgia Lally (Class of 1929) wrote the music for Ohio Dominican University’s “Alma Mater.” Unfortunately, we may never know for sure. 

Janet Leppert was a great writer who earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Art. Sister Francis was a gifted musician who graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music. 

Alma Mater of Ohio Dominican 

May fame be yours through all the world 
Attesting to your lasting truth. 
While banners in the wind unfurled 
Proclaim your leadership of youth. 
Proclaim your leadership of youth. 
Alma Mater. 

You’ve taught us how to live aright. 
You've made your hopes our ideals, too. 
And even though so great the heights 
You spur us on ’til death ensue. 
You spur us on ’til death ensue.
