Ohio's Hotbed of Liberal Arts Schools

+ More

Liberal arts colleges hold a special place in American higher education because of their focus on undergraduates, and, like several other midwestern states, Ohio has a strong heritage in this field. We visited four colleges and universities within a short drive of downtown Cleveland. Enrollment ranged from a few hundred students to 3,000-plus, but it was the diversity of what they had to offer that stood out. Profiles by Alex Kingsbury.
