Ohio Dominican University’s fall 2019 incoming class is its largest since 2012. This fall, 358 students began their educational journey at ODU, 288 of whom are first-time freshmen, and 70 of whom are transfer students. The group represents 46 Ohio counties, 11 states, and nine countries.
This year’s incoming class achieved an average high school GPA of 3.4 and an average ACT of 22, and approximately 38% of students were ranked in the top 25% of their high school class. Thirty students have joined Ohio Dominican’s Honors Program; 36 are participating in ODU’s Panther Promise Program; and 11 are participating in the Columbus Catholic Promise Program.
These new students are pursuing 37 different majors, and five students have been accepted into the ODU-to-OU Med School Early Assurance Program or ODU's Physician Assistant Studies Early Assurance Program.
“This is an exciting time to be at Ohio Dominican,” said ODU President Robert Gervasi, Ph.D. “The size and quality of this fall’s incoming class demonstrates that there is an appetite for rigorous, market-sensitive academic programs in a Catholic values-based environment in which students are able to connect their passion with their purpose. I look forward to watching these students flourish in, and contribute to our vibrant campus community in the years to come.”
