Ohio Dominican University invites students from Columbus Diocesan high schools to attend its Catholic High School Visit Day on Thursday, May 2. The free event will take place from 8:45 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. on ODU’s campus at 1215 Sunbury Road, Columbus, 43219.
Attendees can register at ohiodominican.edu/VisitDay.
During Catholic High School Visit Day, attendees will have an opportunity to participate in numerous activities, including classroom experiences, campus tours, a student panel discussion, and an admissions presentation. Participants are invited to enjoy a complimentary lunch in ODU’s dining hall and attend Mass in Christ the King Chapel.
The event will also feature a group service project competition, in which students will work together to identify a project that benefits a particular organization or individuals in need in the community. After presenting their ideas, a panel of judges from ODU will award funding to the winning team’s high school to help turn the team’s proposal into reality. Last year, a team from William V. Fisher Catholic High School in Lancaster, Ohio was awarded the prize for their idea to collect and package items, such as sweatshirts, fleece blankets, and food and hygiene kits to be distributed to victims of human trafficking and homelessness.
Students who are not able to attend Catholic High School Visit Day are invited to schedule a personal visit to campus at ohiodominican.edu/Visit or by calling ODU’s Office of Undergraduate Admissions at 614-251-4500.
