The University of Findlay is a private institution of higher education founded in 1882, and affiliated to the Churches of God General Conference. Findlay welcomes students of all faiths but it also maintains a close relationship with the CGGC through a board of trustees, shared teaching and worship spaces and a joint religious studies program.
The university offers around 60 programmes of undergraduate study. Its most popular majors include animal science/pre-veterinary medicine, pharmacy, business, equestrian studies and biology.
Findlay also houses the Mazza Museum of International Art from Picture Books - the world’s first, and one of the largest, teaching museums devoted to the art of children’s picture books owning a collection of over 10,000 original artworks.
Students can play 24 intercollegiate sports, such as baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, indoor and outdoor track, soccer, swimming and diving, tennis and wrestling, lacrosse, softball volleyball, western and English equestrian riding. The men’s basketball team won the NCAA Division II US championship in 2009 for the first time.
On campus you can join over 100 organisations, based around special interest, student media, student government, music, theatre, service, academic honours, spirituality, and Greek sororities and fraternities. Some of the intramural sports are flag football, basketball, co-ed volleyball, billiards and bowling.
Students who are looking to become ministers can pursue an undergraduate degree in Religious Studies, which is taught together with the University and Winebrenner Theological Seminary, and focuses on a few Christian denominations such as the Churches of God and General Conference.
